According to reports, as per Section 437 (a) of the CrPC, even after their acquittal, the Talwars will have to furnish a surety to ensure that they will be present in the court in case the state files an appeal in a higher court.

The jailor of Dasna Jail, Dr Maurya informed that the duo breathed a sigh of relief after the announcement of their acquittal.

The judgement in the case was passed by a two judges bench comprising Justice B K Narayan and Justice Arvind Kumar Mishra.

Allowing the appeals the court was of the view that as per circumstances and evidence on record Aarushi's parents cannot be held guilty.

Aarushi Talwar was found dead in her bedroom in the Talwars' Noida home on May 16, 2008. Hemraj's body was found the next day from his room in the terrace.

In November 2013, a special CBI court in Ghaziabad had convicted the Talwars for murdering daughter Aarushi and Hemraj and sentenced them to life. The CBI court said they had killed Aarushi in a fit of rage because they suspected her of having an affair with Hemraj.
