The accused identified as Shrikant Tyagi on Friday was booked by the Noida Police for allegedly assaulting a woman after a heated argument with her. Videos of the entire scene went viral on social media where the main accused Tyagi can be seen repeatedly stressing that he is a member of the BJP's Kisan Morcha, claims which were later denied by the party.
The brawl emerged after the woman reportedly objected to the planting of some trees by Tyagi in the neighbourhood, citing a violation of rules. In several parts, Tyagi was heard hurling expletives and assaulting the woman. He also used abusive words toward her husband and made derogatory remarks about her. Following the same, the police took note of the matter and started an investigation into it. A manhunt has also been launched to nab the accused.
Tyagi was booked under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 354 (assault or use of criminal force on any woman, intending to outrage or knowing it to be likely that he will thereby outrage her modesty), Sections 419, 420 and 482 over a spat with a co-resident of their housing society in Sector 93B.
