    Rajesh Talwar broke down after the verdict and hugged jail officials. His wife, Nupur Talwar, was praying when the verdict was announced.

    BG Chitnis, Nupur Talwar's father told a TV channel that "We've always known Talwars were not guilty... Thankful for the positive verdict. Don't want to hold anyone responsible at present."

    "Have seen them suffering. It has been really testing. I am emotionally drained," he said.

    Vandana Talwar, Rajesh Talwar's sister-in-law, said, "Deeply relieved. Had suffered for 10 years. Grateful to High Court for acquitting them."

    "Rajesh and Nupur Talwar are happy, and said they have got justice," DR Maurya, jailor, Dasna Jail, reported ANI.

     Maurya said the Talwar couple's release is likely on Friday after they receive the court judgment through official channels.

    Nupur and Rajesh Talwar have been serving their sentence in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail.

    Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008. 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 two days later.

    After the Uttar Pradesh Polices' botched-up investigation the then chief minister Mayawati handed over the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
