Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are owed Rs 49,500 by Ghaziabad's Dasna Jail, but they're telling the jail to keep it.

The Talwars, who are both dentists, had helped revive the jail's near-defunct dental department. 

They are owed the money for their services. 


Not only were the Talwars treating inmates but also jail staff and their children. 

And they will continue to visit the jail every fortnight to continue treating inmates. 

The Talwars' conviction for the murder of their daughter Aarushi and help Hemraj was overturned by the Allahabad High Court last Thursday. 

News reports said after their acquittal, a number of inmates and jail staff and dependants with dental problems had queued up to visit the Talwars.

Aarushi and Hemraj were murdered in 2008. The Talwars were convicted by a special CBI court in 2013. 

Ever since then they have been lodged at Dasna Jail.   


They will be released today.
