New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday adjourned the hearing on the bail plea of Nupur Talwar while directing the CBI to complete by Sep 17 the examination of 13 "material witnesses" in the Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj double murder case.

The apex court bench of Justice AK Patnaik and Justice JS Khehar told senior counsel Sidharth Luthra, appearing for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), to complete the examination of 13 prosecution witnesses by Sep 17, the next date of hearing.

The court asked Aarushi`s parents and accused, Nupur Talwar and Rajesh Talwar, to cooperate in the process.
