Tal­wars break down, give each other a hug

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

13-year-old daugh­ter Aarushi Tal­war and do­mes­tic help Hem­raj Ban­jade.

The den­tist cou­ple, in jail since 2013, broke down in their cells at Dasna jail in Ghazi­abad as soon as DR Mau­rya, su­per­in­ten­dent of jail, broke the news. The cou­ple is likely to be re­leased on Fri­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Mau­rya, the cou­ple could not con­tain hap­pi­ness af­ter learn­ing of the ver­dict. He said that they are very happy and have got jus­tice, adding that they had been stressed all day long ahead of the judge­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties, the cou­ple was anx­iously wait­ing for the judge­ment.

Nupur was read­ing a re­li­gious book at 2 pm when the ver­dict was an­tic­i­pated. On the other hand, Ra­jesh at­tended to an in­mate at the jail hospi­tal.

Be­ly­ing spec­u­la­tions, the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion on Thurs­day an­nounced elec­tions only for Hi­machal Pradesh, hold­ing back Gu­jarat’s sched­ule for a later date.

A sin­gle-phase elec­tion will be held for the 68 As­sem­bly con­stituen­cies of Hi­machal Pradesh on Novem­ber 9; count­ing of votes will be done on De­cem­ber 18, Chief Elec­tion Com­mis­sioner Achal Ku­mar Joti said. “This is to en­sure that the vot­ing pat­tern of one state does not af­fect the other... polling in Gu­jarat will be held be­fore De­cem­ber 18 (when Hi­machal re­sults are an­nounced),” Joti said.

The term of the 182-mem­ber Gu­jarat As­sem­bly ends on Jan­uary 22, while the term of the 68-mem­ber Hi­machal Pradesh as­sem­bly ends on Jan­uary 7. Asked if the an­nounce­ment of Gu­jarat polls has been de­layed due to PM’s rally, Joti said, “That is not a fac­tor at all.”
