In the wake of mob violence in Mahagun society which emerged after altercation of a resident family with a maid, the Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Association (FONRWA) will help the police to complete the verification of maids and workers employed in various sectors of Noida.

A delegation of FONRWA met AK Singh, superintendent of Police (city), on Thursday evening to discuss the issue of safety and security of the residents of Mahagun society and other sectors of Noida.

On July 12, hundreds of people attacked the Mahagun Society at Noida sector 78 after a maid, Zora Bibi, accused a family of beating her, on suspicion that she had stolen money. The mob engaged in stone pelting and attacked the house of the accused family, breaking window panes and destroying valuables in their house. The altercation has resulted in strained relationship between residents and workers.

Taking cognizance of the violence at Mahagun, FONRWA president NP Singh has asked the police officials to ensure safety of the residents.. Need for regular interaction of police officials with the representatives of Residents Welfare Associations was also discussed in the meet.

“We have asked police to increase their patrolling and provide ample security to the residents of Mahagun and other sectors. There must be frequent interaction of the police with the RWA members to keep both the concerned parties in loop,” said NP Singh.

Regarding verification of workers and house-helps, FONRWA will be joining hands with the police to complete the process.

“We have asked the police to take up the pending verification of the maids. FONRWA will also help them by completing the verification form and submitting it to the police officials,” said Singh.

“Verification forms are submitted at the verification cell in SSP office, Noida. However, RWAs can complete the form and submit it to their respective police stations and then they will be sent to SSP office,” said AK Singh, superintendent of Police.

Other RWA members also raised the issue of identifying “anti-social elements disguised as workers” in Noida.

“There are many urban villages adjacent to the sectors where the anti-social elements hide. If police focus on these sectors then they will be able to find out more about such elements,” said Sanjeev Kumar, general secretary, RWA sector 51.
