Partially accepting a plea of dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, a special CBI court on Tuesday allowed to record the statements of seven witnesses out of the list of 13 persons the accused couple had submitted.

However, the court rejected two other pleas of the dentist couple, in which they had sought reports of scientific tests and demanded a number of exhibits to be examined by their DNA expert.

Additional Sessions Judge Shyam Lal said that the defence witnesses can depose before the court from June 20.

The court rejected the demand of Talwars to summon former Uttar Pradesh ADG (crime and law &order) Arun Kumar as defence witness. PTI
