Reports suggest that Tyagi is a BJP functionary, however, the party has denied the claim.
The spat took place during the day at the Grand Omaxe society in Sector-93B in Noida when the woman objected to a plantation of some trees by Shrikant Tyagi, citing violation of rules even as he claimed he was within his rights to do so.
Tyagi has been involved in a dispute with the society since 2019. The administration of the society claims the man had encroached upon the premises’ common area.
A case has been registered against Tyagi for abusing and assaulting a woman. The accused is absconding and teams have been formed to nab him.
