In another incident of Noida rage, a case has been filed against a resident of Cleo County, a high-rise in sector 120, after CCTV footage of her dragging and beating her house help went viral.

The 40-second purported video that surfaced online on Tuesday, 27 December, shows a woman identified as Shephali Kaul dragging 20-year-old Anita out of the elevator and pulling her forcefully when she tries to resist. 


Additional DCP Central Noida Saad Miya Khan said that Anita’s father had approached the police with the allegation that his daughter had been held ‘captive’ by her employer Kaul.

A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered at Phase 3 police station and necessary legal action is being taken based on evidence, police stated. 

The FIR has been registered under sections 344 (wrongful confinement), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and 504 (provoking or insulting someone) of the Indian Penal Code.

Copy of FIR accessed by The Quint.

India Today reported the Phase 3 police station incharge as saying, “As per the agreement, Anita was employed to work for the Noida resident 24X7. A case has been registered on the basis of the victim's complaint. Her medical exam is being done and soon the accused will be arrested.”

India Today reported that Anita had claimed to the police that she was confined against her will by her employer and was assaulted. The police sent her for a medical examination.

On the other hand, Kaul told India Today, "There is a difference between pulling someone and beating someone. We had an agreement with the girl since 1 May, her father has already been paid Rs 50,000. Then why did her parents file a complaint in July that their daughter is being held captive?"

She added, "She (Anita) disconnected my rooms' CCTV camera on 25 December, stole jewellery, and hid it in a disposable tissue in the fridge, which she then threw out of the balcony."

Kaul also told India Today that Anita had allegedly mixed sleeping pills in their food and was caught while she was trying to run away.
