Days after Shrikant Tyagi was booked for hurling abuse and assaulting a woman in Noida, his relatives on Sunday allegedly tried to seek address of the victim. Shrikant Tyagi identified himself as a BJP leader on social media, a claim that was later denied by the saffron party following the incident.

On Sunday, 6-7 men entered the Grand Omaxe society in Sector-93B in Noida and allegedly started asking about the address of the woman who was mishandled by Shrikant Tyagi.The residents refused to divulge the information and detained the men. Following the ruckus, the police team reached the spot and took charge of the detained men.

BJP leader Mahesh Sharma said, "I am ashamed about what happened today. I request Union home Minister Amit Shah and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to initiate action against the officials over delay in catching Tyagi."
