A video of a man violently attacking a woman resident of a Noida housing society has gone viral on social media, evoking angry reactions from netizens. In the viral video, Tyagi could be seen using filthy expletives before attacking a fellow resident of a posh housing society in Sector 93b of Noida.
In the video, Tyagi is seen arguing with a woman after she objected to his attempts to encroach upon the park owned by society. Tyagi could be seen calling the woman chavanni chhap lugai before calling her a prostitute. As the argument ensues, he stuns everyone by violently attacking the woman.
Surprisingly, no one from the crowd cares to admonish the goon even after he assaults the woman. Faced with widespread outrage, the UP Police has booked Tyagi and formed teams to arrest him, but the said criminal is believed to have fled from his house.
Who Is Shrikant Tyagi?
Reacting to the development, the National Commission for Women tweeted saying that it had asked the UP police to take immediate action against Tyagi. The NCW tweeted, “@NCWIndia has taken cognizance of the incident. Chairperson @sharmarekha has written to @dgpup to ensure fair and speedy investigation in the matter. NCW has also sought FIR and arrest of the accused for assaulting a woman.”
It added, “The Commission has also written to the police for providing necessary protection to the victim. The action taken must be intimated to the Commission.”
