Allahabad High Court reserves verdict on goon neta Shrikant Tyagi's bail plea

Shrikant Tyagi, who was arrested last month for assaulting and abusing a woman in Noida, was granted bail on Thursday.


By Arvind Ojha: A local court on Thursday ordered to reserve its order on Shrikant Tyagi's bail application, who was arrested for assaulting a woman in UP's Noida last month. Tyagi submitted his bail application before the Allahabad High Court and judge Mayank Kumar Jain ordered that the verdict on the plea should be reserved.

The accused was earlier granted bail in connection with three cases but remained in jail as he was booked under the Gangster Act by the Delhi Police by a sessions court. On Thursday, a Prayagraj court granted bail to Shrikant Tyagi in the remaining case.


Shrikant Tyagi was arrested on August 9 for assaulting and abusing a woman on the premises of Grand Omaxe in Noida Sector 93B on August 5. The incident took place when the woman objected to the plantation of some trees by Tyagi, citing a violation of rules even as he claimed he was within his rights to do so.

As many as 12 police teams and the Uttar Pradesh STF searched for Shrikant Tyagi across three states. He was traced to Meerut, where police arrested him, along with three of his associates.

Shrikant Tyagi has been booked under sections 354 (outraging modesty of woman and assault), 447 (criminal trespass), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Later, he was booked by police in a case of cheating and impersonation for misusing the Uttar Pradesh government symbols and monograms on his vehicles and charged under sections 419 (cheating by personation) and 482 (false property mark) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
