New Delhi, July 12: Police have arrested 13 men on charges of rioting and vandalising property at Mahagun Moderne, the upscale apartment complex in Noida that was attacked by a mob on Wednesday morning, officials said on Thursday.

Police detained 58 men after a raid around 11.45pm Wednesday on the slums near Antriksh Golf View-1 apartments in Sector 78 before making the arrests.

Bibi(maid) said she had only got two months’ salary of Rs 12,000 from her employers. “But instead of paying what was owed to me, they accused me of stealing Rs 17,000 from the house. I was beaten up. I fled to the basement of the apartment complex in terror, and the guards brought me out early this morning,” her statement to the police.

Residents of a housing society in Noida’s Sector 78 woke up to a riot-like situation when around 300 people gathered the premises and started pelting stones.

A maid was caught stealing from one of the apartments owned by Mitul Sethi.

Neighbours of maid were gathered outside the main gate of the society at 6 am who was allegedly beaten up by one of the residents of Mahagun Moderne and damaged the house of Mitul on the ground floor of Manchester-5, a low rise block in the society, police said.

Superintendent of police Arun Kumar Singh rushed towards the spot with other police officers.

“Most of the protesters were domestic helps, who were angry that a maid was been allegedly beaten up. We contained the protest and brought the situation under control. The traffic on the road outside the society was also resumed,” Arun Kumar Singh said.

The chaos continued for more than three hours.

“We have received complaint from the woman who was allegedly beaten up, while Mitul Sethi has not lodged any complaint so far. There are various versions of residents as well as the relatives of the maid. The matter is under investigation,” Singh said.

The maid was found in the morning near the house and was taken to hospital for treatment and discharged after an hour.

Cases of pelting stones and rioting would be lodged.

“It will take us time to ascertain the facts,” Singh said.
