Aarushi Talwar case verdict Live Updates: The parents of Aarushi Talwar, Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar will be released today from Ghaziabad’s Dasna Jail. Yesterday they were acquitted by the Allahabad High Court in the murders of their teenage daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in 2008. As of now it is not clear at what time they will get out of the jail. The jail officials have said that they have not received the papers yet, according to reports. Yesterday, the court had ruled that neither the circumstances nor the evidence was enough to hold them guilty. The 263-page verdict ends, at least for now, the nine-year ordeal of the Noida couple who were sentenced to life by a Ghaziabad CBI court on November 28, 2013 for the double murder that not only transfixed but also shook the nation with its element of filicide. Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars’ Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008.
