They counted days to hear this news. Tears of joy rolled down their cheeks as the Tal­war cou­ple hugged each other af­ter the Al­la­habad High court ac­quit­ted them of killing their 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 their 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.

A day be­fore the judge­ment, anx­i­ety and an­tic­i­pa­tion en­gulfed the cou­ple. How­ever, they main­tained their calm and had nor­mal food for din­ner.

Ac­cord­ing to jail of­fi­cials, Di­nesh Tal­war, Ra­jesh’s brother, who has been the sup­port for the fam­ily, had come to visit them a few days ago. How­ever, on Thurs­day, there was no one from the fam­ily who vis­ited them.

“They fol­lowed their reg­u­lar rou­tine and had their break­fast and lunch com­pris­ing dal, cha­p­ati, rice, veg­etable, daliya and tea,” a jail of­fi­cial said.

Mau­rya said that they are yet to re­ceive the copy of the judge­ment among other pa­pers re­quired for the re­lease of the cou­ple.
