New Delhi, August 6

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has sought the arrest of a politician accused of abusing and assaulting a woman in Noida.

While accused Shrikant Tyagi claimed to be a member of the BJP's Kisan Morcha and his pictures with senior leaders surfaced on social media, the party's local unit distanced itself from him.

The spat took place at the Grand Omaxe Society in Sector 93-B in Noida recently when Tyagi wanted to plant some saplings but the woman objected to it citing violation of rules. He, however, claimed that he was within his rights to do so.

Multiple videos of the episode surfaced on social media, with one purportedly showing Tyagi hurling expletives and assaulting the woman. He also allegedly used abusive words at her husband and made derogatory remarks about her.

In a tweet, the NCW said it had taken cognisance of the incident. Panel chairperson Rekha Sharma has written to Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police to ensure a fair and speedy investigation.

"NCW has also sought FIR and arrest of the accused for assaulting a woman," the NCW tweeted.

The commission said it had also written to the police to provide protection to the woman.
