The Ghaziabhad Court is likely to frame charges against the Talwars in the double murder case of Aarushi and Hemraj on Wednesday.

The court will file the charges after hearing the final arguments of the Defence counsel and the CBI. 

The CBI has claimed that the Talwars were responsible for the death of their daughter. They also said that the injury in both Aarushi and Hemraj's body was identical.

 "The golf stick recovered from the house matches the injury. The Talwars refused to identify Hemraj's body and gave false information regarding the crime scene," CNN IBN quoted the CBI counsel as saying.

However, the Talwars' counsel argued that there was no evidence to prove the charges filed by the CBI.

 "The submission of the closure report itself is the evidence that there is no evidence against the Talwars. And most importantly, all the scientific tests conducted by the CBI go against the investigation agency. Hence the CBI has failed to prove the crime," Defence lawyer Vijay Pal Singh Rathi said according to Zee News.

"Neither the direct nor the circumstantial evidence support the CBI argument to frame the charges. Hence, Nupur and Rajesh Talwar should be discharged from the case," he added.

The CBI has already submitted the documents and CDs relevant to the case as requested by the Talwars. Talwars' counsel had sought 15 days time to study the documents, which the court rejected citing Supreme Court's order to speed up the trial.

The Talwars are facing charges of murder, conspiracy and destruction of evidence. In addition, Nupur Talwar's bail plea will be taken up in the Allahabad High Court on Wednesday. While Rajesh Talwar is out on bail, Nupur is currently lodged in Dasna jail.

In 2008, Aarushi Talwar was found dead in her bedroom, with her throat slit, at her residence in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Domestic help Hemraj's body was found on the terrace the next day.

The Talwars were accused in the case more than 14 months ago. The dentist couple have claimed their innocence and said that the CBI is framing them in the case as they could not find the real killers.

The Arushi-Hemraj case has been one of the unsolved cases with a prolonged investigation as a result of lack of evidence. The trial began in the Sessions Court this month, four years after the double murder that rocked the nation.
