High drama was witnessed in Noida Sector-30 on Monday afternoon, after two brothers, both BBA students, were mistaken for robbers after they were seen on the terrace of a house. The brothers were trying to escape after getting into a fight, but residents called police, thinking that they were robbers.
Police said the two were safely escorted from the place and later arrested. They were charged under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC. Police denied reports of shots being fired in the incident.
Police said the trigger for the incident was a fight on Friday between two Class XI students in Greater Noida. "The issue was settled in school, one of the boys told his elder brothers Rohit and Nishant about the fight. On Monday afternoon, Rohit, Nishant and their friend Sandeep went to confront the boy their brother had fought with. They got into an argument and assaulted the boy, who called for help. When several people armed with lathis and sticks emerged, the three panicked and tried to escape," a senior police officer said.
While Sandeep ran in one direction, Rohit and Nishant crossed the road in front of Nithari and entered a colony in Sector-30.
"They ran up to the terrace of A-14, from where they kept moving from terrace to terrace and reached building A-22, owned by one Sanjeev Mathur. The residents of the house saw the two boys on the roof and locked the terrace. Rohit and Nishant were trapped in the terrace. They assumed that the two were robbers and called police. The terrace was opened after the police arrived. We then took them in custody and charged them under sections relating to assault," a senior police officer said.
Ravinder, the father of the three brothers involved in the case, said, "I was aware of my son's fight in school. I visited the school on Saturday so that the matter could be sorted out, but a cultural function was on and I could not meet the principal."
