Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar will have to spend some more days in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail, despite being acquitted by the Allahabad High Court in the double murder case of their teenage daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, as the jail authorities are waiting for signed copy of the judgment.

The High Court in its judgement has categorically mentioned that there are no enough evidence against Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar. The infamous Aarushi Talwar murder case could not see the light of the day, today, as the deceased still could not get the justice from the higher court.

The report also quoted the director of the film Talvar as saying, "The immediate emotion that engulfed me when I first heard the Rajesh and Nupur Talwar had been acquitted by the Allahabad High Court was of huge relief".

According to reports, the signed copy of the verdict will have to hand-delivered to prison officials before the Talwars can be allowed to walk out of the jail.

Kumar said that there are many evidences, which indicated that the couple is innocent, but when the closure was filed it looked like a chargesheet.

"The chain of circumstances stood snapped the moment, the prosecution failed to prove by any cogent and reliable evidence that the appellants' flat was locked from inside, when Bharti Mandal rang the doorbell of their flat on the morning of May 16, 2008 and a strong possibility of outsiders having accessed into the appellants' flat and left after committing the double murder and in the process latched the middle iron mesh door of the appellants' flat from outside and left the outer grill door of their flat open evinced from the evidence adduced by the prosecution itself, " the court said.

The release of Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar, parents of Aarushi Talwar, who was murdered in 2008 along with her domestic help Hemraj, may be delayed till Monday, say reports.

Pronouncing the verdict in a packed courtroom, the bench said that it is a fit case where the benefit of the doubt can be given to the appellants and set aside the judgement of the CBI court convicting the Talwars.

It was initially suspected that house help Hemraj had killed Aarushi.

Rajesh was first arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Police on May 23, 2008 after which he was lodged at Dasna Jail and let off on July 11, 2008.

The verdict ended a nine-year ordeal of the Noida-based dentist couple who were found guilty by a Ghaziabad CBI court on November 26, 2013 and were serving a life sentence in Dasna jail.
