Aarushi's parents, dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar who were accused in the sensational murder case of their daughter and Hemraj were finally acquitted in the murder case by the Allahabad High Court on Thursday.

In the latest statement given by the Talwars' lawyer, Tanveer A Mir, he has received the copy of Rajesh and Nupur's bail orders which is yet to be presented in Ghaziabad's Dasna Jail keeping the suspense intact about their release. 

Rajesh and Nupur were sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Aarushi-Hemraj by a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in November 2013. The couple will be leaving the jail after spending 4 years there.

The Talwars challenged the conviction and sentence given to them by the CBI trial court for the murder of their 14-year-old daughter Aarushi and the domestic help Hemraj on January 21, 2014.

The Allahabad High Court division bench comprising Justices Bala Krishna Narain and Arvind Kumar Mishra on Thursday ruled out the previous judgement against Talwars and directed the concerned authorities to release both Rajesh and Nupur.

The panel claimed that neither the evidence on record nor the circumstances proved their involvement in the murders of Aarushi and Hemraj. 14-year-old Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit inside her bedroom at the family's Noida Jal Vayu Vihar residence in May 2008.

Initially, the domestic help Hemraj was suspected of being the murderer as he went missing after she was killed. Barely two days after Aarushi's murder, Hemraj's dead body was recovered from the terrace of the Talwar residence, turning the case into one of a double murder.

Based mostly on circumstantial evidence, the parents of Aarushi, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were accused of the double murders. The sensational murder case has since then been converted into a movie and a book.
