Here, it's specifically mentioned the person (Anand Bhawan). So the answer is "AT".

"Anand Bhawan" is a place, therefore 'in' should be used; whether past or present tense contexts. Am I right?

"Anand Bhawan" is a specific place, not a city or country, At is the correct one.

Prepositions of Place: at, on, and in.

We use at for specific addresses.

#Grammar English lives at 55 Boretz Road in Durham.

We use on to designate names of streets, avenues, etc.

#Her house is on Boretz Road.

And we use in for the names of land-areas (towns, counties, states, countries, and continents).

#She lives in Durham.
#Durham is in Windham County.
#Windham County is in Connecticut.

"at" we are using for place and time.

"AT" will be use when we are considering that as a point rather as a place or an area.

ex:
Our plane landed at Hyderabad while going to America.
