Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh), Jan 11 (ANI): The parents of Aarushi Talwar, who was found murdered in her Noida home on May 15, 2008, moved a plea before the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court here on Tuesday asking for documents that the investigating agency has filed along with its closure report.

Earlier on Friday, the court posted January 21 as the next date of hearing on the CBI's December 29, 2010 closure report in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.

The court also ordered the CBI to give a copy of the closure report to Aarushi's parents-Dr. Rajesh and Dr. Nupur Talwar.

The CBI on Friday argued that murdered teenager Aarushi Talwar's father Rajesh Talwar had no 'locus standi' to argue as he was 'no more a complainant' in the case.

Rajesh Talwar's lawyer Satish Tamta, however, pleaded before the court that all documents regarding the Aarushi murder case be made available to Rajesh Talwar.

Opposing Tamta's argument, CBI lawyer R K Saini had told the court that Rajesh Talwar was 'no more a complainant now'.

He added that Noida Police had already suspected and arrested him in the case, after which he had become the accused in the case so he has "no locus standi" to argue or put his stand in the case before the court.

Aarushi, 14, was found murdered under mysterious circumstances in her parents' Jalvayu Vihar apartment in Noida, May 16, 2008.

Their domestic help Hemraj's body was found on the flat's terrace a day later. (ANI)
