NEW DELHI: Following the verdict in the Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, in and around the apartment in Noida’s Jalvayu Vihar, where the murders were committed, the buzz among neighbours of the Talwars reflected the confusion, lies, slander, mystery and the ineptness of the investigation.

“We moved in last year, but faced initial problems as maids and sweepers were not ready to work in L-32. Maybe this flat is a haunted place for some, but for us it is a perfect house. I am happy that they got justice,” Monika Shukla, the Talwars’ tenant and a fashion designer, told the New Indian Express.
Most residents in Jalvayu Vihar have served in the armed forces. On Thursday afternoon, a gaggle of television channels shouting the news was playing through all the windows of the mix of high and low-rise apartments.

“We have been hearing various theories and stories from some neighbours and housemaids. Some claim they hear some sound whenever they visit the house,” said Shukla. “It’s their house where they have memories of their daughter. We all will be happy if they come back,” said Roshan Jha, a former air force officer and a neighbour.

Meanwhile, senior advocate Rebecca John, who represented Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, denied any chances of the case being reopened by the Supreme Court, where the CBI is likely to file an appeal against the Allahabad High Court’s order. She said, “The case is shut now. It was the agency’s job to find the killers. It is not the court’s job. Further probe is obviously not a possibility now.”
