Hours after a Noida politician’s supporters created a major ruckus in the Grand Omaxe Society in Sector 93, bulldozers were seen at the apartment complex - where he resides - on Monday morning. Shrikant Tyagi is missing after he was seen abusing a woman in a video.

While Tyagi said he was a BJP leader, his claims stand dismissed and the party’s MP, Mahesh Sharma, on Sunday was seen publicly expressing his displeasure after Tyagi’s supporters were accused of mobbing the society, asking for the address of the woman who also stays in the same apartment complex.

On Monday morning, bulldozers were seen razing illegal structures outside the politician's. This is yet another incident when such an action has been taken in Uttar Pradesh. Yogi Adityanath has - in the past - warned of ‘bulldozer action’ against those who break law and order. In fact, that was one of the highlights of the BJP’s victory speeches when it won the state for a second straight term in the February-March assembly elections.

Yogi Adityanath has taken note of the case against the politician too, his deputy said on Monday. “The chief minister has taken note of the whole case, we will not let the accused walk free. Strict action will be taken against those who break the law,” UP Deputy CM Brajesh Pathak was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Several people have been detained amid the probe in the incident. A police station in-charge was suspended too

“It was found that there was negligence from SHO Phase 2, Central Noida Sujeet Upadhyay, who has been suspended, further investigation is underway,” Noida Police Commissioner Alok Singh said.

The National Commission for Women too has reacted strongly to the incident. The panel's chairperson, Rekha Sharma, wrote to Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police to ensure a fair and speedy investigation into the matter.
