New Delhi: A special CBI court on Friday posted January 21 as the next date of hearing on the agency`s closure report in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.

The court also ordered that copy of the closure report of CBI in the Aarushi murder case will be given to the Talwars.

The CBI had earlier told the court that Aarushi`s parents are the accused in the double murder case and should not be given a copy of the closure report.

The CBI had filed the closure report as it had been unable to establish a murder motive or find the murder weapon.

On January 3, the court had directed the investigating officer to bring case diary on January 7 for examination.

Special judge Preeti Singh while hearing the CBI plea to close the investigation in the over two-and-a-half year old case, also dismissed an application by Aarushi`s parents for not closing the double murder case, saying it was "not maintainable" at this stage.

14-year-old Aarushi and her family`s domestic help Hemraj were killed on the night of May 15, 2008 in Noida.

The judge had read the application of Aarushi`s dentist parents -- Rajesh and Nupur -- opposing the CBI`s move for closing the case but rejected the same saying that their plea was not maintainable at this stage and asked them to appear before the court on the day of hearing.

The CBI had on December 29 filed a report to end the probe clearing the names of three servants -- Raj Kumar, Krishna and Vijay Mandal -- in the case.

But the needle of suspicion pointed towards Arushi`s father -- Rajesh -- whom the agency named as a suspect who could not be chargesheeted because of "insufficient evidence".
