The offences were allegedly committed between 2011 and 2012.
The accused persons had pleaded not guilty on May 26when they were first arraigned, while the court adjourned to June 30.
The accused persons were supposed to take fresh pleas today but the proceedings were stalled owing to the absence of the trial judge who sent words that he was involved in other engagements.
Consequently, the matter has been adjourned to September 15.
