A sudden clash that erupted on 31 July in Nuh district of Mewat, Haryana, took a dark turn when new information emerged, suggesting the incident was pre-planned to erase cybercrime history from police records. The violent attack, allegedly executed by a radical Islamist mob during the Jalabhishek Yatra on Shravan Somvar, has drawn serious attention from authorities.
Startling CCTV footage from the Cyber Police station in Nuh has come to light, revealing a bus entering the police station premises at the same time the Muslim mob was seen pelting stones at a nearby building. According to reports, the mob forcefully commandeered a public bus and rammed it into the boundary wall of the Cyber Police Station on the day of the Nuh anti-Hindu violence. Subsequently, the mob launched a targeted attack on the main building of the Cyber Police station.
An investigation into the incident has suggested that the attack on the Cyber Police Station was intended to destroy crucial evidence and records related to cybercrime activities in the region. Notably, Nuh has been known as a hub for cybercriminals, and the Haryana police recently carried out a massive crackdown that led to the arrest of more than 60 individuals involved in a ₹100 crore cyber scam, with 250 still at large.
Authorities are now looking into the possibility of an organized cybercrime syndicate being involved in orchestrating the attack, indicating that it may have been a coordinated attempt to retaliate under the guise of a communal angle. Various images, social media posts and video has emerged showcasing the premeditated nature of the attack.
The violent clash resulted in the loss of four lives, including two home guards, and left at least 30 others severely injured. Responding to the incident, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has condemned the attack and asserted that strict action will be taken against those responsible for the violence.
