    Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, both dentists, looked sombre as they stepped out of the main inner gate of the jail towards a car that was waiting for them outside at 4.55 pm. Read more here.

    Please restore my clients' dignity to them, says Talwar lawyer

    "My clients were sold over and over again and it was a herculean task for us to fight not only against the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) but against a very strong public perception (of guilt)," Talwars' advocate Tanveer Ahmed Mir told NDTV

    "They have been honourably exonerated. We have also been able to restore honour and dignity to the family, the slain girl and the domestic help.

    "It is my humble request to everybody in the media that what was snatched from my clients, please restore that dignity to them. Please let them live in peace," he added. -IANS

    Rajesh Talwar's brother Dinesh Talwar and their lawyers Manoj Sisodia and Tanveer Ahmed Mir received the couple at Dasna Jail. According to Section 437 (a) of the CrPC, the Talwars, even after their acquittal, will have to furnish a surety that they will be present in the court in case the state files an appeal in a higher court. -News 18

The Talwar couple, who have been acquitted in the 2008 murder case of their teenage daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, are likely to be released from Dasna Jail on Monday.

The Talwars have been lodged in Dasna jail since November 2013 in connection with the twin murders. Dasna Jail Superintendent Dadhiram Maurya said, "we have not received the court order as yet. We will release them once we get it."

He said there were two methods to complete the process of releasing a prisoner from jail. "Either the Allahabad High Court sends its order copy directly to jail authorities or it is sent through the CBI court concerned which awarded them life sentence," he said.

"In 99 percent cases we get order copy through post. If we are handed over the hard copy of the order we will release them," Maurya added.

The Allahabad High Court had on Thursday acquitted the Talwars in the case, saying neither the circumstances nor the evidence was enough to hold them guilty.

The 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 28 November, 2013 for the double murders that not only transfixed but also shook the nation with its element of filicide.

With the acquittal, the central question in the bizarre mystery resurfaces — who killed the 14-year-old girl and the 45-year-old man.
