GHAZIABAD -- Nupur Talwar, serving life sentence for the murder of her daughter Aarushi, was yesterday released on parole for three weeks from Dasna jail.

According to Jailor R.B. Yadav, as per orders of the Allahabad High Court, she was released from the prison at 7.20 pm.

In July, Nupur had pleaded before the High Court for parole as her ailing mother needed medical attention.

The court had accepted her plea on 29 August and granted her three weeks' parole.

For the last few days, the paperwork related to her parole was going on.

The order for her parole was yesterday sent to the prison authorities after completion of formalities.

In May 2008, 14-year-old Aarushi and the domestic help of the Talwar household, Hemraj (45), were found murdered at their residence in Noida.

A court in Uttar Pradesh subsequently held Nupur and her husband Rajesh Talwar, both dentists, guilty in the double murder case and sentenced them to life imprisonment.

They have been in jail since 2013.
