Ghaziabad: The final arguments on the part of defence could not be resumed today in a CBI court here in the Aarushi Hemraj double murder case, with next date of hearing fixed for tomorrow.
The defence was to resume its arguments today but the case could not be taken up as condolence was announced following the death of a lawyer.
Court of Additional Session Judge Shyam Lal has now fixed October 29 for the next date of hearing.
"Lawyers' union announced one-day long condolence after the death of an advocate, due to which the procedure of final arguments in Aarushi-Hemraj murder case could not be resumed today. Court has now fixed the matter for October 29," said Manoj Sisodia, counsel of Rajesh and Nupur Talwar.
Tanveer Ahmed Mir, another counsel of the dentist couple, has so far argued on the "theories of grave and sudden provocation and presence of Hemraj in Aarushi's room on the intervening night of May 15-16, 2008" in the trial court.
The defence was today supposed to argue on the use of golf club with which, as per CBI's theory, Rajesh had brutally hit Aarushi's forehead and Hemraj's head after finding them in a compromising position.
