with the Chief Minister on Monday Yogi Adityanath Ordering strict action against him and seeking a report from the home department, the police said they are initiating proceedings against Tyagi under the Gangsters Act and announced a reward of Rs 25,000 for information on his whereabouts. Tyagi had filed a surrender application through his lawyer in a Gautam Budh Nagar court on Monday.
Noida Police has suspended a total of six police personnel, including Phase 2 station in-charge, in connection with the case.
UP ADG law and order Prashant Kumar said, “All were suspended for negligence in their duties, which led to the entry of Tyagi’s supporters in the society last night.”
Tyagi had allegedly occupied the society’s common area in the backyard of the flat with a wooden and glass construction. A part of the lawn was also occupied by him. The same thing led to arguments with residents, who objected to the planting of palm trees in the common area. Last Friday, a video had surfaced which showed Tyagi’s standoff with a fellow resident. A case was registered under IPC section 354 for pushing him.
The bulldozers along with the police team started working at Tower D of the society at 9 am on Monday.
