Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday arrested Noida-based politician Shrikant Tyagi accused of abusing a woman resident at a housing society in the city. Tyagi was reportedly apprehended in Meerut and is being taken back to Noida.

In a recent viral video, Tyagi was seen assaulting and abusing a woman at Grand Omaxe in Noida's Sector 93 and was on a run ever since.

Until he went underground Friday night, Tyagi claimed he was associated with the the Bharatiya Janata Party, even as the ruling party denied any links with him. Tyagi was accused of illegal construction outside the ground floor apartment at Grand Omaxe. The matter escalated after his aides barged into the Grand Omaxe society and create a ruckus.

On Monday, Uttar Pradesh government used a bulldozer to raze the illegal construction.

The Opposition meanwhile mounted attack on the BJP over the issue.

"Did the BJP government not know for so many years that the construction by the Noida BJP leader is illegal? Bulldozer action is only for show. The government is avoiding the answers to these questions," Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said in a tweet in Hindi.
