GHAZIABAD: Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, acquitted last week of the charges of murdering their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, walked free from Dasna prison in Ghaziabad on Monday.

The two, carrying three bags, were escorted by a posse of policemen as they emerged out of jail.

They were in jail for the last four years after a CBI Special Court held them guilty of murdering their daughter and destroying the evidence.

Some sources said the Talwars were expected to visit a Gurdwara on their way home. 

Talwars' advocate Tanveer Ahmed Mir expressed satisfaction that they were able to overturn the guilty verdict and get a clean chit for the two.

"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)," he 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.

The couple will be visiting the Dasna Jail every 15 days to attend to inmate-patients after their release.
