The special CBI court hearing the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case on Saturday rejected the application of Talwar couple, seeking 10-day time to appeal against its June 18 order in the Allahabad high court.
Additional sessions judge Shyam Lal turned down the application, saying that it filed to delay the proceedings, and fixed June 24 as the next date for hearing.
"Our application seeking a 10-day time for challenging its June 18 order in Allahabad high court was rejected by the trial court," said Manoj Sisodia, counsel of dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar.
On June 18, the CBI court had rejected two pleas in which the Talwars had sought reports of scientific tests and demanded a number of exhibits to be examined by their DNA expert.
It, however, had allowed to record statements of seven witnesses out of the list of 13 people the accused couple had submitted.
