Ghaziabad, May 8 (IANS) A CBI court here Wednesday rejected the Talwars’ application for adjournment of recording the statement of accused dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the Aarushi-Hemraj double-murder case.
Special Judge S. Lal stated that after completion of the testimonies of the prosecution evidences, trial should be initiated on a day-to-day basis.
