The Peculiar case of 3 Apartments!

A year back we were asked to give a demo of our product in a central Delhi Apartment complex.

The Building was quite old and the Security Guard was very diligently entering all Visitor Data in a register. A resident was standing behind him supervising it.

We were impressed by such diligence regarding Data capture of Visitors.

Soon we got to know the reason and the fact that the process is quite new.

The Complex is surrounded by low-income slums. Residents themselves belong to the middle to upper middle class.

But recently something happened due to which they went to Police as well as Media!

We, urban dwellers, depend a lot on domestic help for overall maintenance of our household. They often are treated as a part of the family. However, recently there has been some disturbing news related to crimes involving domestic help. Here’s how you can ensure safety.

In early September 2016, the country woke up to some gruesome news from Hyderabad. A 25-year-old maid, Vasundhara Lakshmi, murdered her employer’s neighbor in the most brutal way possible. The culprit had allegedly sneaked into the neighbor’s apartment to steal gold and other valuables but was caught in the act by an elderly woman who resided there. In order to get away with the valuables, Vasundhara Lakshmi proceeds to stab the elder lady repeatedly and then herself, as the commotion had alerted the neighbors.

Ensuring Children’s Safety In Apartments

That said, ensuring children’s safety while they are alone at home is a major parental responsibility.
