After a riot-like situation at the Noida housing complex that was attacked on July 12 by hundreds, Group of Intellectuals and Academicians (GIA), an RSS-affiliated organisation, has sent a fact-finding mission to the society.
The attack took place after a domestic maid was allegedly detained by a family on charges of stealing money.
GIA has found that a huge number of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants are working in the city under false papers and the mob attack has prompted the UP administration to start “weeding out the disease” that is infesting the whole of India.
“We have demanded that a CBI inquiry be conducted in the matter as it cannot be brushed aside as a small law and order incident. The fact that a huge crowd of around 500 Bangladeshi immigrants gathered outside Mahagun Moderne society and attacked the concerned family is a big issue. We suspect there is a well-oiled network working on a pan-India level to bring in people illegally from Bangladesh and rehabilitate them in jhuggies (slums) near residential areas. How come these people have valid voter identity cards and Aadhaar cards with them?” asked GIA convenor advocate Monika Arora.
GIA earlier sent a fact-finding mission to look into alleged violence against RSS workers in Kerala.
Arora told Mail Today that the report was in the process of being compiled and will be released in a couple of days. “We shall be submitting the report to chief minister Yogi Adityanath and Union home minister Rajnath Singh.”
The CCTV footage, claimed Arora, showed the maid had not been detained. Instead, she had taken shelter in a neighboring house.
“She is seen staying in a neighbouring house in the society, claiming that she was not well and that she wanted to sleep the night off. She was also given food and tea the next morning by the family. But later, she cooked up a story and the mob attack ensued.”
“What is more shocking is that according to the testimony of the flat owners of the society, the mob attacked the house where she was stealing from and the family had to take refuge in the bathroom. Other maids who were part of the mob knew there was a backdoor which was entirely glass, and they broke that and entered the house with the intention of attacking them. The family was saved when other flat owners came to their rescue. The accused should be charged with outraging the modesty of the woman of the house as they shouted they would rape her and lynch her son,” Arora said.
