Noida: Noida Police has launched an intense investigation to apprehend absconding Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shrikant Tyagi, accused of abusing and manhandling during an argument over the plantation of palm trees near his apartment here in a residential society.

To trace his location, the police detained four people, including his wife.

“We have constituted four teams that are working to nab the accused Tyagi and have also detained his wife for questioning,” Noida police said.

Apart from Tyagi’s wife, the police have also detained his brother, driver, and manager and all of them are currently being questioned.

The matter came to light on Friday when various video clips of the incident went viral on social media in which the Tyagi could be heard hurling abuses at the woman. Tyagi boasts himself as a self-styled MLA as he is the National Executive Member of BJP Kisan Morcha & National Co-Coordinator of BJP Yuva Kisan Samiti.

Social media users also shared the statement of the victim woman who narrated the entire incident.

“I live in Grand Omaxe. A man, named Shrikant Tyagi, residing on the ground floor was encroaching the society by planting small and large plants in the common area. When I asked him to remove it, he denied and when I tried to remove them, he hurled abuses at me and my husband and kids,” the woman said.

In the same video, the residents of the society could also be seen accusing Tyagi of encroaching on the area by planting small and large plants.

Tyagi heard saying in the viral video, “Don’t you dare touch my plants otherwise I will see you.”

After the incident, his pictures with top BJP leaders including JP Nadda went viral on social media. However, BJP has denied any connection with Tyagi and in a video message on Twitter BJP MP Rajkumar Chahar, has claimed that he is not a member of BJP Yuva Kisan Morcha.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, Ankita Tyagi informed that soon after the said video went viral on social media, the Noida Police immediately swung into action and registered an FIR under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC at the Panchsheel police station.

The senior officer assured that the accused would soon be arrested and punitive legal action will be taken against him.
