- Shrikant Tyagi, however, is still on the run
- Tyagi was booked by Noida Police for allegedly assaulting the woman after a spat
- Tyagi was earlier declared a 'self-proclaimed politician' by BJP MP Mahesh Sharma
Shrikant Tyagi, who misbehaved and threatened a woman in a residential complex in Noida, is still on the run. His supporters, meanwhile, on Sunday entered Grand Omaxe in Noida's Sector 93B, and tried to mob the housing complex. They tried to create a ruckus in the apartments and were seen repeatedly asking for the woman's address.
In a video that was released to India TV, the residents of the society were seen protesting at the police for inadequate action. The supporters were detained by the police after the residents had cornered them.
Tyagi was declared a 'self-proclaimed politician' by BJP MP Mahesh Sharma earlier, and he made it clear that he is not from the saffron party. Sharma reached the society after the mob attempt, and was seen reprimanding the police for their inadequate action. He spoke to UP ACS (Home) Avneesh Awasthi over the uproar.
Tyagi was booked by the Noida Police for allegedly assaulting the woman after a spat with her inside a housing society.
While the politician, Shrikant Tyagi, stressed that he is a member of the BJP's Kisan Morcha and his pictures with senior leaders surfaced on social media, the party's local unit said he is not associated with them. The Noida Police has detained Shrikant Tyagi's wife, cousin and two house helps in order to get information about the absconding self-proclaimed politician.
The case so far
The spat took place during the day at the Grand Omaxe society in Sector-93B here when the woman objected to plantation of some trees by Shrikant Tyagi, citing violation of rules even as he claimed he was within his rights to do so.
Video goes viral on social media
Multiple videos of the episode surfaced on social media, with one purportedly showing Tyagi hurling expletives and assaulting the woman. He also used abusive words for her husband and made derogatory remarks about her.
