 The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has served notices to the district magistrate and superintendent of Police, Gautam Budh Nagar over African students being assaulted in Greater Noida.

The rights panel has acted on a complaint that police has falsely implicated innocent residents of the NSG society in the matter of assault on some African national at a mall in Greater Noida.
 
The officials have been given four weeks to submit their reports. The commission has also asked its director general (investigation) to collect the facts. 
 
According to the complaint by some residents of the society, families living in the NSG society are being harassed in the name of the investigations. As a result they are so petrified that they are not able to attend schools and colleges as board exams are in progress. 
 
On March 25 a youth living in the NSG society allegedly died due to overdose of drugs supplied by some Nigerians. The residents of the society had taken permission from the administration to take out a peaceful candle march in his memory from the society to the Pari Chowk on March 27. Even as they were sitting in the silent prayers at Pari Chowk, some anti-social elements assaulted few Nigerians at a nearby mall. But the police have named 53 persons who were not even present at the place of the incident, which, they claim, can be seen in by the CCTV camera recording at the mall.
 
Seven persons have been arrested by the police who were allegedly not present at the site of the assault. They were part of the candle march and sitting at the Pari Chowk at the time of the incident, a video recording of which is available with the police.
