We will be happy if the Tal­wars re­turn: Neighbour

The New Indian Express - - INDIA - ANKUR SHARMA & SANA SHAKIL @ 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.”
