Nearly after a week of the car park brawl at the Amity University, Noida Police has finally arrested three accused Mayank Tanwar, Chetan Rao and Shiv Kumar. The trio has been booked under stringent sections of rioting and criminal intimidation.
On Wednesday, police nabbed three students who are accused of beating up Amity students Madhav and Harsh on August 28. The police is interrogating all three of them to ascertain what exactly happened on that day.
Without undermining the role of the police, these arrests have come after many netizens launched social media campaigns demanding justice for the victims. Amity students also took out a rally on Wednesday to protest against the beating up of boys and pressed for a response from the university administration.
SP (city) Vineet Jaiswal said the three students were arrested because there was “strong evidence” supporting the .. the claim that they had assaulted Harsh and his friends. He quoted,
CCTV footage shows Mayank, Shiv and Chetan arriving in a Skoda and Scorpio and assaulting the trio. They were interrogated and arrested later.
When the police was questioned about the woman’s allegations, Jaiswal said that so far, the police had not received any clues from CCTV footage. The university, which has suspended 11 students in connection with the clash, termed it a “case of personal altercation”.
The online campaigns demanding justice for the two boys, in a way put lot of pressure on Noida Police following which they released a video statement yesterday. Jaiswal clarified that it was the duty of police to file an FIR whenever a woman registered a complaint of molestation. Jaiswal also emphatically said that FIR was only the beginning of any investigation and assured that law will take its due course.

- On August 28, several students of Amity University allegedly assaulted other students in Sector 125 where the varsity is located
- The students who were allegedly beaten up were identified as Harsh Yadav and Madhav Chaudhary, both pursuing BA (Political Science)
- According to the victims, the issue erupted following an argument with a girl over parking cars outside the campus
- The victims later alleged that the girl with whom they had the argument called 25-30 boys to beat them up
- After the victims lodged an FIR against the girl and others, the girl filed a cross FIR of molestation on the boys
While many netizens have appreciated police action, they are still demanding arrest for the girl who allegedly is the cause of this big campus fight.
Great move …kindly arrest that girl also who tried to kill these innocent souls.

Sir, job half done. Complete once you arrest the other goondas who barged in and allegedly also beat the teacher. Once investigation completes, hoping that the girl at the Center of the drama is also put behind bars for a day or two for lodging false allegations against the boys.
