Another wrote, “She might be a Tyagi, Mishra, Pandey or Tripathi. After pan India outrage, her caste people will gather and absolve her and finally extend their support that’s how we dealing abuse nowadays.”
Not too long ago, the police had arrested BJP leader Shrikant Tyagi, who was seen abusing and assaulting a woman in another housing society in Noida. He was later released on bail as the police did not oppose his release allegedly due to his association with the BJP.
Tens of thousands of people belonging to Tyagi’s upper caste Hindu gathered in Noida in his support on Sunday. It remains to be seen if a similar show of strength from Bhavya’s community would be displayed in days to come.
