Mahagun Moderne Society attacked by villagers

Mahagun Moderne Society attacked by villagers

On Wednesday, hundreds of angry people while alleging that a Bangladeshi domestic help was abused and beaten apart from being kept in captivity by a society's resident, had pelted stones and ransacked the guard room of the Mahagun society.

They alleged she had stolen Rs 10,000 and that she had confessed to her crime. "They beat me up and threatened me", she said.

When stopped by the security guards, the mob started pelting stones.

Superintendent of Police A.K. Singh said: "We've received a complaint from the husband, but the residents of the apartment have not registered any complaint yet".

The home where the incident of beating up the maid for stealing money allegedly took place belongs to Mitul Sethi who is a captain in merchant navy. "We are trying to contain the protest", the SP said earlier today.

They also blocked a main Dadri-Surajpur-Chhalera (DSC) road at Barola, halting traffic towards Noida Phase 2 Industrial Area, the report said.




The residents, however, differ from the account of the protesters.

A report in HT says that the police admitted that the maid was found inside the apartment complex in the morning. Reportedly, after a tiff with her employer, she went missing for a day. They ended their protest only after police intervention.

On the other hand, the house owner has made a statement that she has stolen the cash from the house and they have the CCTV proof as well. Since the maid as well as her relatives are believed to be of Bangladeshi origin, the Mahagun Moderne Society has banned employment of domestic help belonging to Bangladesh for security reasons.

When questioned of her whereabouts, the maid said she was given food and water which she had, and went unconscious. "I wonder how the husband knew about the phone if his wife had not gone back home", he said.

Abdul said after they were beaten with batons they resorted to pelting stones in self-defence. Videos captured from the scene showed a mob moving inside the premises of the society and hitting structures with sticks and rods. The decision was taken by the residents of the society since it doesn't have a residents' welfare association (RWA), according to a report by Hindustan Times.
