Talwars walk out of jail quietly; back to their Noida home

NEW DELHI
16 Oct 2017

Just for a moment, the Talwars stood still. Then they quietly walked out of Ghaziabad's Dasna jail, where they had spent four years over the murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, both dentists, looked sombre as they stepped out of the main inner gate of the jail towards a car that was waiting for them outside at 4.55 pm. Rajesh Talwar wore a white shirt and a pair of blue trousers, while his wife was dressed in an orange kurta, with a white salwar and dupatta. They both carried bags.

Aarushi's uncle Dinesh Talwar, along with lawyer Tanvir Ahmed Mir, reached the jail at 4.48 pm. Minutes later, the Talwar couple was out of the prison, with photographers and camerapersons milling around to capture them in their frames. The two stood still for a few seconds, before walking up to the car, escorted by Dinesh Talwar.

The police escorted the couple to the residence of Aarushi's maternal grandparents in Jalvayu Vihar in Noida. Nupur 's father, B G Chitnis, was a former group captain in the Indian Air Force. The Talwars lived in another flat -- later rented out -- in the same society, and it was there that Aarushi and Hemraj were found dead in 2008.
