People took to Twitter to condemn the mob attack on Mahagun Moderne, the upscale apartment complex on Wednesday morning, and even accused ‘Bangladeshi immigrants’ of ‘destroying Noida’.
More than 300 people gathered at the gates of the complex in Sector 78 around 6am, alleging that one of its residents had assaulted a domestic help.
They believed Zora Bibi was being held as a captive in one of the resident’s house after being accused of theft. The three-hour rampage stopped after Bibi was found in a 25th floor flat of an elderly woman in a neighbouring tower, where she had taken shelter for the night.
Twitter users posted their opinions with ‘#MaldaInNoida’ and related it to protest rally that was attended by thousands of Muslims in West Bengal’s Malda district in January last year and turned violent.

Just look at the result of aadhaar cards given by some of our 'people's leaders' to Illegal Bangladeshi Muslims! #MaldaInNoida— Anirban Dasgupta (@AnirbansTweets) July 13, 2017
If these Bangladeshis are not getting kicked out from India #MaldaInNoida like situation will only get worse.— ਪੰਜਾਬੀ (@HasdaaPunjab) July 13, 2017
After the chaos, residents of the Mahagun Moderne have decided not to allow ‘Bangladeshi’ domestic helps in the society. As the society has no residents’ welfare association (RWA), the decision of debarring the maids was taken by the ‘active residents’ of the society.
Residents said that the society has 2,750 flats in its 16 high-rise and four low-rise buildings. Ninety percent of them are occupied and many of the houses have Bangladeshi domestic helps.
