New Delhi: Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar will not be released from Ghaziabad’s Dasna Jail today because a copy of the verdict that acquitted them has not yet been delivered to prison officials.
The prison officials said that they had not received a copy of the High Court order and could initiate the release procedure only after getting the same. The copy of the ruling will first be sent to the special CBI court in Ghaziabad that had convicted them in 2013 and whose order was overruled by the Allahabad High Court. Following this, the certified copy will reach Dasna prison and the procedure to release Nupur and Rajesh Talwar begin thereafter.
The duo was acquitted on Thursday in the 2008 double murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj for lack of evidence. It has now been learnt that the earliest they could walk free out of prison is now Monday.
