Maninder Pal Singh Kohli on Wednesday filed a notice of contempt of court against the parents of Hannah Foster in a Delhi court.
Kohli is wanted by the authorities in UK for his alleged involvement in rape and murder of British teenager Hannah Foster.
Hannah's parents, Trevor John Foster and Hillery Foster, who wrote letters to the Indian President, Prime Minister and Chief Justice of Delhi High Court are alleged by Kohli to have interfered in the judicial proceedings.
However, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kamini Lau posted the matter for for Thursday.
Meanwhile, the court also deferred Kohli's bail application to February 21.
According to the bail application, the post-mortem report of deceased Hannah Foster, cited by Kohli's counsel as an "extremely vital document", nowhere indicates that she was raped, which is allegedly the motive of the murder.
Kohli has also challenged the DNA analysis, which as done in the present case is not conclusive evidence in medical science.
Kohli had escaped from England on March 16, 2003, two days after 17-year-old Foster's body was found. He was brought to Delhi from Chandigarh where he was lodged after his arrest on July 15, 2004 from Kalimpong.
