Ghaziabad: A Ghaziabad Sessions Court on Monday adjourned the hearing of Aarushi- Hemraj double murder case while asking the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) to hand over a CD and other related documents to Talwars.

Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are demanding the call details of Krishna, Rajkumar and Vijay Mandal, who were initially arrested in the case. The couple also wants the statements of the police officers who have investigated the case.

The CBI has given the statement of Data Ram Nanoria, the first investigating officer in the case, to Talwars. The couple had asked for call records and narco analysis tests of Krishna as well. The judge made no mention of it in the order.

The trial had commenced in the lower court on Friday, four years after sensational double murder, but the court deferred its decision on the plea after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) strongly objected to it.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Shayam Lal had, during the first hearing, orally asked the CBI to hand over its case diary to Talwars "for the sake of justice". owever the investigating agency had contended that the same could not be done, as it could weaken the case further.

After hearing the arguments of both sides, the court then posted the matter for next hearing on Monday.

Aarushi was murdered on the intervening night of May 16-17, 2008 at her Noida residence and the body of the Talwars' domestic help Hemraj was found on the terrace of the house the next day.
