On May 23, 2008, Rajesh Talwar was arrested and was kept in Dasna jail; on July 11, 2008, he was let off. Nupur surrendered in Ghaziabad court on April 30, 2012.
The couple were not in the packed court for the hearing.
The couple was now lodged in Dasna jail in Ghaziabad.
"The high court observed that they have been punished wrongly. So they were happy after they were told about the news", he said. It initially absolved the parents of conspiracy and murder but later held them responsible. She claimed the whole case was based on "innuendos" and would "not have carried through". "The evidence was weak", declared the lawyer. The police found her with her throat slit and injuries on her head.
