After violence broke out in Noida’s Mahagun Moderne Society on Wednesday morning, residents have decided to not employ Bangladeshi domestic helps. 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. “None of us knew such a situation would arise. Those who pelted stones work only in this society and it shows none of us are safe,” Brijesh Singh, a resident of the society was quoted saying in the report. The incident reportedly took place when local villagers barged into the society to protest against the alleged beating up of a domestic help by one of the residents after being accused of theft. In a video that was accessed by The Indian Express, villagers and security guards of the society were seen throwing stones at each other. However, FinancialExpress.com cannot verify the authenticity of the video. The incident took place at around 7 am in the morning.

The locals also blocked the Dadri-Surajpur-Chhalera (DSC) road at Barola, leading to halting of traffic near Noida Phase 2 Industrial Area. The domestic worker was later identified as Zohra and according to a report by The Indian Express was admitted to the hospital. Meanwhile, according to Zohra’s husband, Abdul Sattar, the 26-year-old had left her house to work like every other day in the morning. “But unlike other days, she didn’t come home for lunch. By 4 pm, we got worried and went to the apartment complex to look for her. There the security guard told us that she had entered in the morning at 7 am, but the security registered didn’t know show her leaving.”

Zohra and her husband both are from Cooch Behar in Bengal and have been living in Noida for over a decade, confirmed the police while dismissing the report that she was an illegal Bangladeshi migrant. The police also added that both had valid identity documents, including Aadhaar cards.
