A bulldozer on Monday reached at the Noida residence of Shrikant Tyagi, a self-proclaimed politician, who had allegedly abused and assaulted a woman to remove illegal encroachment. This come a day after his supporters created a ruckus at the Grand Omaxe Society in Sector 93 of Noida.

"I saw the video and took cognizance of the whole matter. We've made an enquiry committee which would find out all culprits. Any person who participated in this would be taken to task," Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak said after the action. "The Chief Minister has taken cognizance of the whole case, we will not let the accused walk free. Strict action will be taken against those who break the law."

The residents of the Grand Omaxe society have also welcomed the action, saying they annoyed with the illegal construction.

"We are happy with this action by Chief Minister and CEO of Noida authority. We were annoyed with his illegal construction and attitude," a resident told news agency ANI.

Tyagi, an alleged member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Kisan Morcha, got himself engaged in a verbal spat with a woman in the society a few days back. The video of the incident had also gone viral in which he was seen abusing and assaulting the woman.

Days after the incident, Tyagi's supporters reached the Grand Omaxe Society and asked for the address of the woman. After this, District Magistrate (DM) Suhas LY and Noida Police chief Alok Kumar Singh visited the society and assured action against Tyagi.

Later, the officials suspended Noida Phase 2 station in charge Sujit Upadhyay for negligence. The National Commission for Women (NCW) also came into action and sought Tyagi's arrest and asked the police to provide security to the victim.

Meanwhile, the BJP distanced itself from Tyagi, saying he is not a member of the saffron party. "I am ashamed to say this is our government. Find out how did these 15 men enter the residential complex," Noida MP and BJP leader Mahesh Sharma was quoted as saying by NDTV.
