Six supporters of Shrikant Tyagi, the self-proclaimed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker who was caught on camera assaulting and abusing a woman neighbour in Noida on August 5, were granted bail on Tuesday days after they were arrested last week for trespass and criminal intimidation. Tyagi was arrested on August 9 from Meerut.

On August 7, the six stormed the Grand Omaxe Society in Noida’s Sector 93B and sought the address of Tyagi’s neighbour. Their lawyer Sushil Bhati said they were booked under bailable charges. “Hence, they were granted bail.”
