    The lawyers of Talwar couple 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 was 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.

    D. Maurya, Jailor, Dasna Jail, told ANI, "Court has opened after a two day holiday, there is a strong possibility of the Talwars being released today."

    He told media persons that Talwars will continue to visit jail periodically so that medical assistance provided by them to inmates can continue.

    Appreciating Talwar couple's medical service in the jail, jailor said that Talwars treated inmates for free and refused remuneration."If they would have taken it, the amount would've been approximately Rs 49,500," he added.

    Last week, the High Court struck down a CBI court order convicting them for the murder of their daughter, Aarushi, and domestic help, Hemraj, in 2013.

    The court said the Talwars can't be convicted based on mere suspicion and the Talwars should be given the benefit of doubt." On 26 November 2013, the Talwars were awarded life sentence by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad.
