A Sessions court in Ghaziabad has adjourned the hearing till May 16 on the plea of dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar for providing them all the CBI documents pertaining to the twin murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
Aarushi’s parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are accused in the case.
May 16 will mark four years since the murders of Aarushi, 14, and her family’s domestic help Hemraj.
In their plea, the Talwars had said the CBI had not provided them all the documents related to the case, including the report prepared by the first Investigation Officer, Dataram Nauneria of Uttar Pradesh Police, and their telephone call records.
The CBI stoutly opposed Talwars’ plea for more documents.
Special Judicial Magistrate Preeti Singh on May 9 had sent the case for Sessions trial, rejecting a plea by the couple that the case cannot be put to trial as they have not been supplied all the prosecution documents.
Transferring the case, the Magistrate had said she did not have the requisite power under the Criminal Procedure Code to hold the trial of a murder case which can only be tried by a Sessions court.
