Relatives of the deceased, meanwhile, blamed guard Anil Kumar for not acting when their domestic help Roza raised an alarm. She too claimed that Kumar refused to act or even call up the police and wasted 15-20 minutes as the unmasked assailants walked off brandishing daggers in their hands.
Shri Ram Juneja, the victim's father-in-law, said, "It is a pity that the killers strolled out of the house from the front gate that is manned by a full-time guard. Even the other guards who had gathered outside did not intercept the assailants."
He added that the accused could have attacked him and his wife too.
Roza said Kumar misguided other guards and people who had gathered outside the house after hearing her screaming and diluting the issue despite the fact she had told him about the attack.
"I repeatedly told the guard to inform other family members who were upstairs at the time of the incident but he did not move. He told other guards who came to inquire about the noises that nothing was wrong," Roza added.
