The couple was now lodged in Dasna jail in Ghaziabad. Nupur and Rajesh Talwar have been serving their sentence in Ghaziabad's Dasna jail.
AGL Kaul, the CBI investigator who had submitted a closure report in the case, had said in his report that no evidence was found against the culprits in the case, and the only evidence that was available was circumstantial.
The High Court also granted them bail and ordered the jail officials to release them immediately.
Although the court verdict has put an end to an nearly a decade long legal process, several people on Twitter asked the most pressing question of 'who killed Aarushi?' Some of them even expressed concern if the Aarushi murder case will ever be untangled? I think this is what has happened in this appeal.
However, the court rejected the CBI's claim of lack of evidence.
The verdict ends a nine-year ordeal of the Noida-based dentist couple who were found guilty by a Ghaziabad CBI court on November 26, 2013 and were serving a life sentence in Dasna jail.
# The HC said that CBI could not substantiate evidence.
Twitter was abuzz with reactions after Rajesh and Nupur Talwar were acquitted in Aarushi and Hemraj murder case. The chain of evidence they have showcased is inconclusive. The agency has said it will take a call on appealing the high court's decision after it goes through the judgement.
The Allahabad High Court is likely to pronounce the verdict at around 2 pm. Therefore giving the benefit of doubt to the Talwars, the trial court judgment has been overruled.
# Will approach the Supreme Court if HC rules against us, says Talwars' lawyer.
Aarushi was found dead in her bedroom at the Talwars' home in Noida near Delhi; then Hemraj, the family's Nepalese domestic help was discovered killed on the terrace.
# However, the mystery over the sensational murder case further deepened as the two CBI teams which investigated the case, came to contradictory conclusions.
