Dumplings To Detention: Greater Noida Students' Momo Fight Lands Them In Jail

A street fight erupted after a dispute over a momo order in Greater Noida.

Noida:

A fight over who would have momos first has landed two college students in Greater Noida behind bars, police officials said on Thursday.

The episode unfolded Wednesday night at a fast food cart in the Alpha 2 commercial market of the city, they said.

"The two students had arrived at the cart for snacks, like several other youngsters. Both of them had ordered a plate of momos. Soon a plate arrived, but an argument broke out between them as both claimed it was their order," a local police officer said.

"The argument soon escalated into a brawl, with expletives being hurled and fisticuffs starting between them right next to the momos' cart. Soon some more youths joined, and a fight broke out," the officer said.

According to the police, some witnesses called up the emergency 112 service, after which the local Beta 2 police station officials were alerted and they reached the spot.

The two people who started the fight were taken into police custody, and it was found that they were students at a private college in Greater Noida who were staying as paying guests in nearby accommodations, the police said.

However, the students were granted bail later on Thursday after spending some time in lockup.

"They were produced before a local magistrate, who granted them bail," Beta 2 police station in-charge Munendra Singh said.

Both were arrested by the police, which has initiated action against them under Indian Penal Code Section 151 (knowingly joining or continuing in an assembly of five or more persons likely to cause a disturbance of public peace after such assembly has been lawfully commanded to disperse).

The offense is punishable with imprisonment of up to six months, a fine, or both, but is bailable, according to officials.
