According to jailor D Maurya, the Talwars refused as much as Rs 49,500 as fee.
A special CBI Judge, S. Lal, had earlier held Rajesh and Nupur Talwar guilty of conspiracy and murder of Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj. "They (Talwars) have assured us that they would visit the jail to attend to inmates every 15 days even after their release", jail doctor Sunil Tyagi told PTI.
Dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar walked out of the jail today after being cleared by the Allahabad High Court in the murder case of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj and will be provided with security.
Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar, the dentist couple who were acquitted from the murder case of their daughter Aarushi Talwar, have walked out of the jail after 4 years.
Earlier, counsel for Nupur and Rajesh Talwar, Tanveer Ahmed said that the Allahabad High Court's decision is a stamp on the innocence of the couple, adding they deserved this verdict.
The police then began to suspect the Talwars and said Rajesh had murdered the two after finding them in an "objectionable" position. Nupur and Rajesh Talwar have been serving their sentence in Dasna jail in Ghaziabad since November 2013.
The highlights of the high court judgement were read out in the court with further reports trickling into media, fueling speculations over the Talwar couple's release.
The order, however, failed to bring a closure to the case and the public opinion remained divided, even after years of the conviction.
Aarushi was found dead inside her room in the Talwars' Noida residence with her throat slit in May 2008. The CBI court had alleged that Aarushi was killed in a fit of rage, because they suspected her of having an affair with Hemraj. However, a day later the body of Hemraj was found on the terrace of the flat in which the Talwar family lived. The double murder case intensified when the preliminary investigation suggested that both the murders were executed with clinical precision and it might be the job of an insider.
