Dental clinic at Dasna Jail in Ghaziabad may soon be renamed after Arushi Talwar, the 14-year-old schoolgirl whose murder and subsequent conviction of her parents for the crime by a CBI court captured nation’s attention. The dentist couple had recently been acquitted of the murder charges by Allahabad High Court.

Minister for prisons and prison reforms of Uttar Pradesh Jai Kumar Singh Jackie on Tuesday said that the state government was considering a proposal in this regard based on a request of Talwar couple. The minister was in Allahabad to attend a programme organised by MP Anupriya Patel.

The minister said he would meet the couple and inform them of the development. “I will also appeal them to visit the clinic two days in a week to provide their valuable services”, he added.

It is worth mentioning that the Talwar couple offered dental treatment to prison inmates and even jail employees during their four years in prison. Talwars revived the dental clinic, which was defunct at Dasna Jail Hospital.
