  • Shrikant Tyagi- is booked for abusing and assaulting a woman following a verbal spat in Noida’s Grand Omaxe Society

New Delhi: Bulldozers on Monday morning rolled into the Noida’s Grand Omaxe Society as a part of an encroachment drive against the self-proclaimed BJP leader, who has been accused of misbehaving with a woman in the housing society following a verbal spat.

Police officials and authorities reached the society in Sector-93 B in Noida and demolished the illegal property of Shrikanth Tyagi, the accused. During the drive, supporters of the self-proclaimed absconding BJP worker were detained as they created a ruckus.

The demolition comes a day after an FIR was filed against the accused. On Sunday a group of supporters barged into the society protesting and seeking the address of the woman involved in the incident. The Noida police taking cognizance of the incident invoked the Gangster Act.

Meanwhile, Noida District Magistrate Suhas LY and Noida Police chief Alok Kumar Singh visited Grand Omaxe and met the residents there and promised that Tyagi’s property will be attached. The incident also led to the suspension of the Noida Phase 2 station in charge Sujit Upadhyay for negligence of duty.

Tyagi has since been on the run and a lookout notice has been issued against him. The National Commission for Women (NCW) has also sought Tyagi’s immediate arrest on his acts to abuse and assaulting a woman a few days ago when an argument broke as the former wanted to plant saplings, but was not permitted.
