Noida (Uttar Pradesh) [India], July 12 (ANI): Local villagers on Wednesday protested inside the Mahagun Modern society in Noida's Sector 78 against the alleged beating up of a domestic help by one of the residents. The protestors alleged that the help was held captive at the employer's residence. However, the residents of the society rubbished all the allegations and said the house help had concocted the whole incident and created an unwarranted outrage, while adding that the protest by the local villagers was uncalled for. "The woman is lying. She was totally fine when she left the society. The mob unnecessarily gathered and pelted stones at us. The unruly behaviour was illegitimate," said Ashish Gupta, a resident of the society. "We have her in our CCTV footage. She was absolutely fine when she left. All her allegations are false," said another resident Puneet Kumar. According to reports, the protestors flooded the society early morning today and created chaos. The police has been deployed outside the apartment after the incident and is trying to bring the situation under control. Domestic help Zohra was missing for a day following a fight with her employer. (ANI)
