Talwars’ house block turns into a fortress

Thursday, December 30, 2010

NEW DELHI - A day after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) asked a Ghaziabad special court to close the murder case of Aarushi Talwar, the Talwars’ residence in south Delhi was literally turned into a fortress, where entry of outsiders was prohibited.

Aarushi, daughter of dentist parents Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, was found murdered under mysterious circumstances at her parents’ Jalvayu Vihar apartment in Delhi’s suburban Noida May 16, 2008. The family’s domestic help, Hemraj, whom Noida police initially suspected for the murder, was also found killed on the flat’s terrace a day later.

After the murder, Aarushi’s parents shifted from their Noida residence to Azad Apartments in Hauz Khas.

Since Wednesday evening, when the news about the case broke out, the multi-storeyed complex was being swamped with mediapersons, and OB vans were blocking the narrow lane.

We are not allowing any outsiders, and especially, journalists to enter the complex since yesterday (Wednesday). Many come to the apartment premises and they never leave, the security guard at the apartments block told IANS.

Since people from all quarters were flocking the apartments, many residents were complaining about the unwanted attention and they being denied their evening walks.

We have no problem of Talwars staying here, but the unwanted attention the apartment is getting is not good. We are not even able to take a walk as many ask for information which we are not aware of,” a resident of the building said.

Another resident said: With the police officials and media people making a beeline to their apartment, our reputation is at stake as it is noted for all the wrong reasons, which is bothering us.
