Talwar couple to walk out of prison by evening
Ghaziabad: Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, acquitted last week of the charges of murdering their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and domestic servant Hemraj, are set to walk free from the Dasna prison in Ghaziabad later on Monday, officials said.
The certified 275-page copy of the Allahabad High Court has reached the prison authorities, the officials said.
The couple will have to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs 1 lakh each and two people to stand guarantee.
Manish Sisodia, lawyer for the Talwars, said his clients were expected to be released by 6 p.m. They were in the jail for the last four years after a CBI Special Court held them guilty of murdering their daughter and destroying the evidence.
Family sources say the couple’s relatives including Rajesh Talwar’s brother Dinesh and the Chitnis family (Nupur Talwar’s parents) will receive the couple at the jail gate.
Police are making arrangements to handle the anticipated media melee, an official told IANS.
The Superintendent of the Dasna prison, Dadhiram Maurya, said the Talwars would be freed after the completion of legal formalities.
Some sources said the Talwars were expected to visit a temple in Noida once they are out of the jail.
Their lawyers have written to the police in Ghaziabad seeking police protection to them after their release. They have cited an earlier attack on Rajesh Talwar at the Ghaziabad court premises with a knife.
