Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, the dentist couple who were acquitted on Thursday in a case involving the murder of their daughter Aarushi Talwar and their domestic worker Hemraj, are likely to be released from Ghaziabad’s Dasna Jail on Monday. The couple were initially supposed to be released on Friday, but they were not let out as prison authorities had not received the court order.

The Talwars had helped revive the “near defunct” dental department at the prison hospital, PTI had reported, citing a jail official, on Sunday. “We were concerned about the fate of our dental department after their release,” jail doctor Sunil Tyagi was quoted as saying. “They have assured us that they will visit the jail to attend to the inmates every 15 days even after their release.”

The Allahabad High Court had acquitted the couple on Thursday, overturning their conviction in 2013 for killing their 14-year-old daughter and domestic worker Hemraj in Noida. The bench pronounced its verdict after pinpointing loopholes in the inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

The Talwars had appealed against their conviction after they were sentenced to life in prison by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad. Justice BK Narayan and Justice Arvind Kumar Mishra overturned this ruling and allowed their appeal, exonerating them in the murder case.

“The conviction cannot be based on suspicion,” the judges had said. “The CBI failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the Talwars are guilty. The Talwars did not kill their daughter Aarushi...They must be given benefit of doubt.”
