Dasna Jail’s dental clinic to be named after Aarushi


ALLAHABAD: UP minister of state for jail Jai Kumar Singh Jaiki on Wednesday said the state government has decided to name the dental clinic, operated by dentist couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in Dasna jail, after their daughter Aarushi.
The near defunct dental clinic was revived by the Talwars during their imprisonment in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.

The minister said the Talwar couple had requested that the dental department of the jail hospital be named after their daughter Aarushi.
“Sarkar unki ichcha ka samman karti hai, aur isme koi harj bhi nahi hai (The state government respects their feelings, and the re is also no harm in it). We are serious on the issue of renaming the clinic as the Talwars had immensely contributed in the treatment of the prisoners during their imprisonment,” he said.
“Either the jail department seniors officials or I will meet the Talwars within 15 days to expedite the formalities. Our aim is to ensure that the patients at the jail continue to get their services. The couple will be requested to attend the clinic at least twice a week,” he said.

The Talwars were acquitted by the Allahabad high court on October 12 and released on October 16.
