Awaiting release after being acquitted by the High court, dentist Rajesh Talwar on Friday attended to a rush of patients inside the prison here while his wife Nupur Talwar spent her time with the children of inmates at the jail creche.

The High Court in its judgement has categorically mentioned that there are no enough evidence against Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar.

The court also found no reason "to fasten the appellants with the guilt of double murder merely on the proof of the deceased being last seen alive with the appellants in their flat on the night of May 15, 2008 specially in view of the alternative hypothesis of the double murder covenanted in the prosecution case itself, " it said.

"Summary: With the acquittal by the high court, they have got justice", said Harkesh, one of the shopkeepers.

"The Talwars are likely to be released from Dasna Jail on Monday". Reacting to the Aarushi Talwar verdict, Irrfan said, "The court of law has in its eyes given justice to a case".

A bench of Justice BK Narayana and Justice AK Mishra set free the couple in the murder of 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar at their Jalvayu Vihar home in Noida on May 16, 2008 overturning a Special CBI Court judgment which convicted them for the murders.

As the Uttar Pradesh Police drew flak over shoddy investigation into the case which was making national headlines, the then chief minister Mayawati handed over the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The Noida-based dentist couple, who have been in jail since November 2013 in the murder case of their daughter Aarushi and help Hemraj, have been attending to inmates. The needle of suspicion had initially moved towards 45-year-old Hemraj, who had gone missing but his body was recovered from the terrace of the house a day later. During the initial investigation, the murder was ruled out to have been done by someone with full medical precision and suspected involvement of an insider.
