A few Noida Police personnel were allegedly thrashed by villagers in Ghaziabad on Sunday (November 26), and their service weapon was looted from them, officials said. Two personnel of the Noida Sector 63 police station sustained injuries in the attack which took place when they had gone to the Masauta village in Ghaziabad to conduct an investigation of a case.
