Last week, the High Court struck down a CBI court order convicting them for the murder of their daughter, Aarushi, and domestic help, Hemraj, in 2013.

Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, the parents of 14-year-old Aarushi, who was found murdered nine years back in Noida, finally walked free today from the Dasna jail here after the prison authorities received the required court order.

Watched by a huge crowd, the Talwars, each holding bags, walked out of the Dasna prison in Ghaziabad and paused - Rajesh Talwar in a white shirt and dark pants and Nupur Talwar in a salwar kurta - letting multiple cameras capture their first few moments of freedom. "Had they taken it, the amount would have approximately been Rs. 49,500", Jailor D. Maurya said. "They (Talwars) have assured us that they would visit the jail to attend to inmates every 15 days even after their release", jail doctor Sunil Tyagi told PTI.

Aarushi was found dead with her throat slit, inside the bedroom of her residence in Noida's Jal Vayu Vihar in May 2008. They are very happy and said that they have got justice.

The high court had overturned a CBI court verdict, strongly criticising CBI for "miserably failing" to prove the Talwar couple's crime and the special court's judgement for propounding "vitriolic" theories rather than sticking to basic tenets of law.

The highlights of the high court judgement were read out in the court with further reports trickling into media, fueling speculations over the Talwar couple's release. Hemraj's body was found the next day from his room on the terrace.

The case was initially probed by the Uttar Pradesh police and later, the investigation was handed over to the CBI.

However, the court rejected the CBI's claim of lack of evidence.
