The self proclaimed politician Shrikant Tyagi, who was arrested in August for assaulting a woman in a Noida society, was released from jail on Thursday, officials said. Tyagi was lodged at the Luksar jail in Greater Noida on August 9 on charges of abusing and assaulting a woman at a residential society in Noida, and was granted bail by the Allahabad High Court two days ago.

Earlier on August 9, Uttar Pradesh police arrested Shrikant Tyagi, who was seen in a viral video assaulting and abusing a woman at Grand Omaxe in Noida's Sector 93 and was on the run ever since.

He was arrested by police near Noida.

Tyagi sentenced for abusing and pushing a woman

Tyagi, who claims to be a member of Bharatiya Janata Party's Kishan Morcha, has been accused of allegedly abusing and pushing a woman who is a resident of Grand Omaxe society in Noida's Sector 93B, during an argument.

Noida Police had said that IPC sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 447 (punishment for criminal trespass) have been added to the FIR registered.

A Uttar Pradesh court had earlier rejected the bail plea of Tyagi and he was sent to judicial custody.

"He was released this (Thursday) evening after all legal formalities," Jail Superintendent Arun Pratap Singh told PTI. Clad in a white kurta-pajama paired with a black waist-coat, Tyagi (34) walked out of the jail around 6.30 pm and was headed home at the Grand Omaxe society in Noida Sector 93B.
