Two students of Amity University in Noida were assaulted brutally on the 28th of August after an argument with a girl over parking. According to reports, the girl had parked her car wrongly which prompted the victims to request her to move the car.
However, the matter soon escalated and the girl allegedly had the students beaten up by her acquaintances. A false molestation case has also been allegedly filed against the victims by the girl.

“It was around 2.30 p.m. I was in my i20 car and was looking to park it while a girl in her Ford Endeavour came that way. She parked her SUV in the middle of the road and when I asked her to move, she started arguing with me. I parked my vehicle elsewhere and then when I confronted her again, she started abusing and threatening me after which the argument escalated,” Harsh, one of the victims, wrote in his complaint.
Afterwards, the students left the spot without further altercation but were threatened by the girl of grave consequences. According to sources, the goons along with the girl then entered the students’ classroom while classes were going on and demanded that they are handed over to them. On being refused by the professor, the mob created a ruckus inside the classroom and started beating up the students. These accounts are also doing the rounds on social media.

The University, however, denies that outsiders entered the premises and maintain that it was a case of a personal altercation between the girl and her friends, and the victims that occurred outside the campus.
Amity has no tolerance for violence on campus and has strict security protocols
This case is a personal altercation between a girl and a boy and their friends outside the campus.
No outsider entered inside campus

As per sources, the victims were again attacked outside the campus later and beaten brutally. Two of them suffered severe injuries including one who had to be admitted to the ICU. However, he is recovering and his condition is said to be stable. According to screenshots doing the rounds, the girl has apparently put up a WhatsApp status where she can be seen asking for forgiveness.
The incident has generated a lot of angst among students of the university and on social media and people are demanding justice for the victims whose names are learnt to be Harsh and Madhav. Harsh needed 7 stitches in his head while Madhav had to be admitted to the ICU. Apart from them, other students were also said to be injured when the mob created a ruckus within the college premises.
Noida Police has reportedly booked four students Mayank, Shiv, Chetan and Kunal for allegedly beating up the students inside the university campus. “On August 29 (next day), we got a complaint from the girl that Harsh and Madhav molested her after they had an argument over parking,” said a police officer. Cross FIRs have been registered in the case, no arrests have yet been made. CCTV footage is also being looked at.
The University said that no student has filed a complaint with them directly. “We found out about the incident from different sources. However, a proctorial committee will be formed and the matter will be investigated thoroughly,” a University spokesperson said.
“There was a personal altercation between a boy and a girl, which was dealt with immediately by the university officials. Later, both individuals filed a police complaint against each other and the police are investigating. The university has also set up a proctorial discipline committee to look into the matter. Few students have been suspended. Since this is a sensitive issue, we request all not to escalate,” the University said in a statement.
