"We are happy about the acquittal and are grateful to the judiciary that they heard our appeal. The justice system went with the truth," said Aarushi Talwar's grandfather to News18. "The festival of Diwali will be celebrated partly in our household to grieve for Aarushi. Rajesh and Nupur will be staying with us for a short while."
Earlier, in a strongly-worded verdict, the Allahabad High Court came down heavily on a trial court judge for being "unmindful of the basic tenets of law" while convicting Rajesh and Nupur Talwar of double murder, in the 2008 Aarushi Talwar murder case. While exonerating the dentist couple of all charges, the division bench reproached CBI judge S Lal for acting like a "film director" who tried to solve the case like a "mathematical puzzle".
Dasna Jail superintendent, Dadhiram Maurya, said that they have requested for Talwars to be provided security cover. "Inmates were queuing up outside the Jail's dental clinic since they got to know about the Talwars' release," said Maurya, before adding that the couple had not been taking their per-day wage in jail.
