The Mahagun society issue in Noida, Uttar Pradesh now has various versions, and it seems that some vested interests have deliberately confused the public with various versions of the case. We reported what the family who was attacked by the murderous mob had to say about the incident, along with other publicly available information. Another Mahagun resident took to twitter and expressed what he saw and came to know:
We contacted him and asked him to tell us what he knows and saw about the incident – this is what he said :
“Maid stole money 7 days back, confessed later (CCTV footage available & given to police). Then she left the house she was working and vanished (CCTV footage available & given to police). She was neither confined by anyone, nor beaten, nor did she fall sick (all this has been proven by CCTV footage). She was hiding in complex itself in another tower and was detected by guard.
After that, slum dwellers came and did stone throwing (CCTV footage given to police). They badly ransacked the house of the employer, the owners were somehow saved by guards and other residents. That the maid was found medically fit upon examination, is confirmed by Govt Medical Officer & SHO Sec-49. HT (Hindustan Times) has reported this. It seems that some Human Rights groups and journalists are distorting the incident. Most TV Channels are gradually correcting their versions now.”
We asked him on the fact that police says that the maid Zohra has all relevant documents and is not Bangladeshi. His reply –
“Actually, the Bengali speakers can easily differentiate between the dialect and the diction. It is a known fact that many illegal Bangladeshi immigrants have Aadhar cards.”
However, it doesn’t make too much of difference in this case whether the maid belongs to Bangladesh or West Bengal. The fact remains that a Muslim mob ransacked this society when one of them was found to be stealing.
It seems that most residents are saying the same thing, those who were present on the scene for those few horrifying hours. The following tweets prove that the above version seems correct and that law was taken into own hands by a raging Muslim mob.
