A CBI court trying the 2008 Aarushi-Hemraj twin murder case on Thursday adjourned further hearing to May 9 as the lawyers of the prime suspects in the case, Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, claimed that they were not provided with complete documents.

Considering the defence lawyers' request, the Ghaziabad bench deferred the hearing in Aarushi-Hemraj twin murder case.

Meanwhile, Nupur and Rajesh have reportedly decided to move the Allahabad High Court against the session court order.

Nupur spent three nights in Dasna jail after her three bail applications were rejected by the sessions court. However, vesting her hopes on the Supreme Court, on Wednesday she had moved the apex court bench seeking to set her free on bail.

The court rejected the bail plea, maintaining that being a prime accused in the double murder case, Nupur could possibly tamper with the evidence. This is one of the counts Nupur and Rajesh have been charged with. Further it said that she could also evade the legal process, the bench observed this based on her records.

Nupur was sent into judicial custody after she surrendered before CBI court on the apex court directions.

Nupur last month moved the Supreme Court after a CBI court trying the Aarushi case issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for skipping a court hearing.

However, the Supreme Court bench instructed Nupur to surrender before CBI court as the probing authorities alleged that she was playing "delaying tactics."

The CBI officials, who are probing the 4-year-old twin murder case, urged the apex court to reject the petition seeking a stay on the warrant against Nupur and accused that she has been evading the law and legal process, despite the serious charges against her. Meanwhile, the agency also alleged that Nupur was "misusing the law system" by filing several petitions in various courts, hindering investigating process.

Aarushi, 14, was found dead in her bedroom at her residence in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, with her throat slit. Hours later, another dead body was found on the terrace, which was identified as that of the domestic help Hemraj.
