The Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case is set to come up in three courts on Wednesday, media reports said.


The dentist couple - Rajesh and Nupur Talwar - will first appear before a Sessions court in Ghaziabad, which is likely to begin hearing arguments on the framing of charges on Wednesday.

Tthe Allahabad high court will on Wednesday hear Nupur Talwar's bail plea in the case. Nupur has been in the Dasna jail for the past 17 days.

The case will also come up in the Supreme Court that will continue hearing arguments on the Talwars' review plea, which seeks the quashing of the trial court's order.

On Tuesday, the CBI handed over CDs and documents to the defence counsel as directed by the session court during Monday's hearing.

However, the agency was unable to provide all the documents as they ran into thousand of pages, said CBI counsel.

14-year-old Aarushi was found murdered on the intervening night of May 16-17, 2008 at her Noida residence and the body of Hemraj was found on the terrace of the house the next day.
