GHAZI­ABAD: It has been nearly four years for both Nupur and Dr Ra­jesh Tal­war at Dasna jail in Ghazi­abad. And in these four years, the den­tist cou­ple helped re­vive the near de­funct den­tal depart­ment at the jail hos­pi­tal.

“Af­ter they ar­rived, we re­quested them to con­sider serv­ing the in­mates. Our den­tal depart­ment at the jail hos­pi­tal was al­most shut and there were grow­ing num­ber of com­plaints from in­mates about den­tal is­sues. We could not send most of them to gov­ern­ment hos­pi­tals out­side as it meant de­ploy­ing po­lice per­son­nel each time,” said an of­fi­cer from Dasna jail.

Once they took up the job, jail of­fi­cials pro­cured more equip­ment. Other doc­tors also started ar­riv­ing. “Now, no in­mate from the jail is sent out­side for the treat­ment of den­tal prob­lems. Nupur Tal­war treats women while Ra­jesh is as­signed to treat male in­mates. They have done their job with ut­most pro­fes­sion­al­ism,” he added.

“Their fam­ily mem­bers, es­pe­cially Di­nesh Tal­war (brother of Ra­jesh), of­ten come to meet them. The fam­i­lies share a strong bond,” the of­fi­cer added.

The cou­ple are in jail for the mur­ders of their daugh­ter Aarushi and do­mes­tic help Hem­raj Ban­jade. A CBI court had held them guilty and awarded them life im­pris­on­ment. The ver­dict was de­liv­ered nearly five-and­half years af­ter Aarushi and Hem­raj were found mur­dered at Tal­wars’ Jal­vayu Vi­har res­i­dence at Noida on the in­ter­ven­ing night of May 15/16, 2008.
