Talwar Couple To Spend Another Weekend In Jail:- The dentist couple, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar who were proved innocent by the Allahabad High Court, in the murder case of their daughter Aarushi and their maid Hemraj, are unlikely to leave the jail before Monday.
The couple were scheduled to be out of Dasna jail in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, on Thursday. As a copy of the verdict has not yet been delivered to the prison officials, the Talwars will have to wait.
“If order comes today (Friday) before the jail closure, they'll be released today itself but possibility is less. Jail closes by 7:30-8:00pm. After receiving the order, procedure in jail takes just half an hour,” Dasna Jail Superintendent said.

The court will be closed on Saturday and Sunday for the weekend. The couple’s nine-year ordeal was ended by the Allahabad High Court. It said that they could not be held guilty given the circumstances and evidence on record.
After a special CBI court in Ghaziabad had convicted them for murdering Aarushi and Hemraj, the Talwars have been lodged in Dasna jail and were sentenced to life. The couple had killed Aarushi in a fit of anger, because they have suspected her of having an affair with Hemraj, said the CBI court. Challenging this order, the Talwars then approached the Allahabad High Court.
To be recalled, on May 16, 2008, 14-year old Aarushi Talwar was found dead in her Noida house with her throat slit and head bludgeoned. The next day on the terrace of the house, The Talwar’s domestic help Hemraj was found dead. Hemraj too was found with his throat slit and there were wounds on his head. All over his body, there were wounds and the door to the terrace was locked from inside.
