Ghaziabad: A CBI special court here has postponed the Aarushi murder case to July 20 in view of its pendency before the Supreme Court.

Special CBI court magistrate Priti Singh yesterday postponed the matter till July 20.

Aarushi's dentist parents, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar--will appear before the court on the next date of hearing as warrants have been issued against them.

14-year-old Aarushi, the only daughter of the Talwars was found dead with her throat slit at the family's Noida residence on the outskirts of Delhi on May 16, 2008 and the body of their domestic help, Hemraj, was found on the terrace the next day.

The Supreme Court on April 25 ticked off the CBI for suddenly becoming "active" against the Talwars and said it would "examine on merit" the dentist couple's plea challenging the trial court's summons against them in the twin murders of teenager Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

A bench of justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar, which heard the arguments of the CBI and Rajesh Talwar and Nupur also questioned the couple over their reluctance to appear before the trial court.

The Talwars however, got a breather as the apex court while adjourning the matter to July 12, clarified that its March 19 order staying the proceedings against the Talwars would continue until further others.
