Nupur Talwar, the accused in controversial Aarushi Talwar murder case has been released from Dasna jail this week. Talwar, who was the mother of Aarushi, has been released on a three-week parole given to her by the Allahabad court on the grounds that her mother has been ill and she has to take care of her.

The high court bench comprising of justice BK Narain and justice AK Mishra approved of the parole about two weeks back after hearing of the accused’s mother’s health condition. Talwar contended that all her siblings are outside India which leaves her mother with no one during her bad health.

The court permitted the parole on the condition that she gets back in jail as soon as her siblings come back within three weeks.
