Dasna (Uttar Pradesh): Dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, who have been acquitted in a case pertaining to the murder of their only child Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj in 2008, were released from Dasna jail in Uttar Pradesh on Monday evening after four years.

Rajesh's brother Dinesh Talwar and the couple’s lawyers Manoj Sisodia and Tanveer Ahmed Mir were present at the jail at the time of their release.

Police escorted the couple to Nupur's parents' house in Noida's Jalvayu Vihar, the same locality where they stayed when their daughter and their domestic help were murdered in 2008.

There was mayhem on the road outside the jail with mediapersons scrambling to capture the Talwar couple walking out.

"A conspiracy had been hatched to implicate our clients," said the couple's lawyer Tanveer Ahmed Mir after their release, which comes just two days ahead of Diwali.

He added that the prosecution presented wrong evidence and requested the media to "let them live in peace".

The Allahabad High Court in its October 12 verdict said neither the circumstances nor the evidence were enough to hold them guilty.
In November 2013, a special CBI court in Ghaziabad had convicted the Talwars for murdering daughter Aarushi and Hemraj and sentenced them to life.


The CBI court said they had killed Aarushi in a fit of rage because they suspected her of having an affair with Hemraj.

Aarushi Talwar was found dead in her bedroom in the Talwars' Noida home on May 16, 2008. Hemraj's body was found the next day from his room on the terrace.
