Aarushi murder case: Rajesh and Nupur Talwar taste freedom after four years, step out of Dasna jail

Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar stepped out of Dasna jail in Ghaziabad just after 5 pm on Monday, tasting freedom after four years.

As the dentist couple walked out, they were greeted by a huge crowd of mediapersons and well-wishers.

The Talwars are expected to be given additional security till they reach home.

Their release papers reached the jail only minutes earlier.

The CBI court in Ghaziabad on Monday issued the order to release them after their lawyer Satyaketu Singh submitted the certified copy of the Allahabad High Court judgment to judge Rajesh Chaudhary.

The Allahabad High Court on Thursday overruled the trial court judgment in the Aarushi Talwar murder case and declared them both innocent.

The court acquitted them, saying no conviction can stand on the basis of mere suspicion.

Rajesh and Nupur Talwar filed an appeal challenging a CBI court order convicting them in the murder of Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj in 2008.

The couple was awarded life sentences by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on 26 November, 2013, a day after their conviction.
