New Delhi: The lawyers of Rajesh and Nupur Talwar have received a certified copy of the Allahabad High Court order acquitting the dentist couple in the murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.

It will be provided to a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on Monday, which will then issue an order to the Dasna prison authorities to release the couple, one of the Talwars' lawyers said.

 

Courts in Ghaziabad observe a holiday on second Saturdays. The order's copy was received late on Friday evening.

"We have received a certified copy of the order of the Allahabad High Court. It is expected that they (Rajesh and Nupur) will walk out of the jail on Monday," Vandana Talwar, Aarushi's aunt, said.
