set dateTimer = dateadd(d, -1, dateTimer)
where
datepart(hh,datetimer) between 0 and 2 or

update TestTable set mdate = (Select Case When DATEPART(HOUR, AppMstDOJ ) >=0 and DATEPART(HOUR, AppMstDOJ ) <=3 then CAST(CAST(CONVERT(DATE, AppMstDOJ ,101) AS VARCHAR) + ' 12' + ':' +  '59' + ':' + '59' AS DATETIME) else AppMstDOJ  end from AppMast where AppMstID = 272)

update <table>
set dateTimer = cast(LEFT(CONVERT(nvarchar, DATEADD(DAY, -1, dateTimer), 120), 11) + '23:59:59' as datetime)where
datepart(hh,datetimer) between 0 and 2 or
(datepart(hh,datetimer) = 3 and datepart(mi, datetimer) = 0)

If you already ran the first update just don't do the dateadd again:

update <table>
set dateTimer = cast(LEFT(CONVERT(nvarchar, dateTimer, 120), 11) + '23:59:59' as datetime)where
datepart(hh,datetimer) between 0 and 2 or
(datepart(hh,datetimer) = 3 and datepart(mi, datetimer) = 0)

23:59.59 is easer than 12:59.59
Is it really 3 AM  or < 3 AM?

Just strip the time and subtract one second
UPDATE table
SEt yourdtm = DATEADD(second, -1, CONVERT(varchar(10), yourdtm, 101))
WHERE DATEPART(Hour, yourdtm) BETWEEN 0 AND 2
OR
DATEPART(Hour, yourdtm) = 3 AND DATEPART(minute, yourtdtm) = 0
