Self-styled politician Shrikant Tyagi’s wife, Anu Tyagi, submits an application at Surajpur district court to provide her husband with security cover whenever he leaves jail for court hearings.
Shrikant Tyagi, who has been arrested on charges of molestation, rioting, cheating, and relevant sections of the Gangster Act, has been in judicial custody since 9 August and is lodged at Luksar jail.
Anu Tyagi said in her plea, “Previously an attempt has been made to kill Shrikant Tyagi by gangster Vinay Tyagi, after which he was fatally injured. At the time, Y-level security was given to Shrikant, but it was withdrawn later.”
“Vinay Tyagi and his accomplices can attack Shrikant Tyagi while he is commuting from jail to Surajpur court for his court hearings. Hence, I request the judicial magistrate to provide security cover for Shrikant Tyagi.”
She further requested that her husband be given protection like a bulletproof jacket, two special guards, 19 constables with automatic weapons and an anti-riot vehicle while being brought from jail to the court.
Members of the Tyagi community submitted an application on Tuesday at the collectorate in Surajpur seeking action against police personnel “who mentally tortured Anu Tyagi”, besides the withdrawal of charges levied under the Gangster Act.
Senior officers of the Gautam Budh Nagar police refuted the allegations of misbehaving with Anu Tyagi.
