Law enforcement swiftly responded by apprehending three minors, students of the madrassa, who were later placed in a shelter home under the juvenile justice system. The police filed a case against unknown individuals, invoking sections 323 (causing hurt) and 341 (wrongful restraint) of the IPC, along with provisions of the SC and ST Act at the City police station.

To prevent any potential communal backlash, the authorities deployed a substantial police force on the streets of Nuh and engaged in peace meetings with religious leaders. They also urged the public to refrain from posting on social media platforms that could escalate tensions.

This incident unfolded as the group of women, belonging to the Dalit community, were on their way to perform a ‘kua pujan’ ritual to celebrate a family birth. Allegedly, some individuals from the madrassa verbally abused them, and when confronted, the women were pelted with stones around 8 pm on that fateful evening.

Nuh’s police chief, Narendra Bijarniya, confirmed the arrest of the three minors, emphasizing the need for discipline among the students. The imam of the madrassa explained to the police that a few students playing on the terrace accidentally caused slippers and stones to fall on the women below.
