The Ghaziabad session court on Monday adjourned the hearing of Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj murder case till May 22.

The trail was due to start on Friday but the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court deferred till Tuesday after hearing the arguments on framing of charges against Aarushi's parents, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, who are accused in the murder.

Earlier this week, the CBI opposed the plea of Talwars to give 15 days' time to examine the papers that were submitted by the investigating agency.

However, granting a day's time, special CBI judge S Lal adjourned the hearing of the case till May 22.

Meanwhile, the Dasna jail authorities have asked Nupur Talwar, who is facing the trial in the gruesome twin murder case, to seek permission from the court for writing a book while she is lodged in the jail, the Times of India reported.

"We have asked her to take permission from court before writing a book," Times of India quoted jail superintendent Viresh Raj Sharma as saying.

He added that Talwar has already started writing a book titled "Mystery behind Aarushi's death: Story of an unfortunate mother."

Nearly, four-years-ago in 2008, teenager Aarushi Talwar was found dead with her throat slit at the Talwar residence in Noida in the morning of May 16.

Later, the body of Hemraj, Talwars' domestic help, was found on the terrace the next day.

The case has since spiralled into one of the country's biggest unsolved cases with a prolonged investigation marked by admissions of lack of evidence and dramatic twists.

Dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh maintain that they are innocent, and argued that they are being framed by the CBI since the agency has not been able to track down the real killers.
