Allahabad: Allahabad HC on Wednesday adjourned the hearing on a petition moved by parents of Aarushi Talwar till Friday. The Talwars had moved HC, challenging a CBI court order which made them accused in the case.

Justice BK Narain adjourned the proceedings after senior counsel Gopal Chaturvedi, appearing for Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, briefly mentioned the plea of his clients.

The petition has challenged the Ghaziabad court order of February 9 in which the couple has been made the accused on the basis of CBI’s closure report. It also charged them with engaging in criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence.

According to Chaturvedi, the petitioners have submitted that the CBI court had passed its order "without taking into consideration the objections submitted by us".

Teenager Aarushi was found dead inside her Noida residence on May 15, 2008 with her throat slit and the body of Hemraj was recovered later from the terrace.
