New Delhi: After spending over four months in jail, murdered teenager Aarushi Talwar's mother Nupur Talwar was released on bail on Tuesday. Speaking to CNN-IBN, she expressed sadness over being pre-judged by people in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case.

Speaking about the difficult time in jail, Nupur Talwar said, "Being in jail itself is an extremely difficult part. A jail is after all a 'jail' and the lack of freedom and the lack of being able to be with your loved ones and family is really really tough.

Nupur Talwar also spoke about the book she's writing. "I had started writing it. The book is about what we have gone through, how difficult our life has become and about the case. It's about what society has done to us," she said.

When asked why she did not appear in the court when she was summoned, Nupur Talwar refused to comment. "I will not talk about any of the court issues now," she said.

Nupur Talwar walked out of Dasna Jail after five months on Tuesday evening while the trial moves at a slow pace in a Ghaziabad court.

After emerging out of jail Nupur and her husband addressed the media. Rajesh thanked the media for its support and said that the family would keep fighting for justice.

"We will open a clinic in the name of Aarushi. We will also try and provide legal help those who need it. I am relieved that I am finally out the jail," said Nupur.

The Supreme Court had granted bail to Nupur a week ago. Nupur, who had been in judicial custody since April 30, and Rajesh have also been charged with destruction of evidence in the sensational double murder case that took place more than four years ago.

Aarushi, 14, was found murdered at her parents' Noida residence May 16, 2008. The body of Hemraj, who was initially accused of killing Aarushi by her parents, was found the next day on the terrace of the house.

A CBI court has charged the Talwars under sections 302/34 (murder with common intention) and 201 (destruction of evidence with common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). In addition to these, the court charged Rajesh Talwar under section 203 (giving false information in respect of an offence committed) of the IPC.
