Noida: Shrikant Tyagi on run, bulldozers arrive at home

Two bulldozers rolled into Noida’s Grand Omaxe society on Monday morning to raze portions of the extended balcony area — wooden panels and glass roofs — of Shrikant Tyagi’s residence which encroached into common areas. Tyagi has been booked for verbally abusing and pushing a woman and is yet to be arrested.
The demolition went on for a couple of hours in the presence of Noida Police personnel and officials of the Noida Authority.
The action comes a day after a group of men allegedly supporting Tyagi barged into the society on Sunday night in an unauthorised manner. An FIR under IPC sections 447 (punishment for criminal trespass), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) among others has been registered against 10 men, of whom six have been arrested and four are absconding. An FIR was also registered against Tyagi on Friday under IPC Section 354 among others, police said.
According to some residents, after Sunday’s incident, a few parents were afraid to even send their children to school. The demolition has brought relief for them, they said.
Later in the day, Noida Police issued a reward of Rs 25,000 for Tyagi’s arrest, as per a statement.
