Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar on Saturday walked out of the jail in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad after being cleared in the murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj. The couple was provided with security at the time of their release. Earlier, Jail Superintendent Dadhiram Maurya had told media that jail authorities had requested the Ghaziabad district administration to give security to the couple till the time they reach home. “The district administration has accepted our request. There is a possibility that they would be released from the jail in the afternoon,” Maurya was quoted as saying by PTI.

Talwars’ lawyer had received a certified copy of the Allahabad High Court, which he submitted to Ghaziabad’s special CBI court which had awarded them life sentence. The dentist couple were lodged in Dasna Jail since November 2013 after they were convicted by thel CBI court in the sensational double murder case. They were acquitted by the Allahabad High Court in the case last week. In a special gesture, the dentist couple will be visiting the Dasna Jail every 15 days to attend to inmates facing dental problems after their release.
