New Delhi: Despite being found innocent yesterday of murdering their only child and their domestic help, dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar are unlikely to leave jail before Monday because a copy of the verdict that acquitted them has not yet been delivered to prison officials. Sources said that a signed copy of the judgment will have to be hand-delivered before the Talwars are freed and the weekend will delay the process.

The 263-page verdict ends, at least for now, the nine-year ordeal of the Noida couple who were sentenced to life by a Ghaziabad Central Bureau of Investigation court on November 28, 2013 for the double murder that not only transfixed but also shook the nation with its element of filicide.
