Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi responded on Sunday to the “classic insults” and “dirty language” allegedly used by a woman against security personnel at a housing association in Noida and demanded punishment for her behavior.
The woman was identified as Bhavya Rai, who was caught on video misbehaving staff in Jaypee Wish Town.
While it was not yet confirmed what caused the altercation, the video showed the woman hurling expletives at guards and holding one of them by his uniform. She also made indecent gestures and threatening remarks at them.
“The video of a lady using abusive and dirty language to her construction workers is disturbing. Using classist insults and abusing people of any state is criminal and shameful, hope UP police make sure she is punished for this behavior,” Chaturvedi tweeted.
The police registered a case on the guard’s complaint. She was booked under IPC Sections 153A, 323, 504, 505 (2) and 506. She had previously been detained by the police for questioning.
“A woman named Bhavya Rai was caught on video abusing and misbehaving by the society’s security personnel. The police registered a case based on the guard’s complaint. Her vehicle was taken to the police station and she has been arrested,” news agency ANI quoted Bharti Singh, additional CP (HQ), as saying.
Earlier, chairman of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Swati Maliwal also reacted sharply. “This woman is openly abusing this guard with so much hooliganism and abuse. What kind of vulgarity is this? @noidapolice tough action is needed against this woman,” she tweeted in Hindi.
Gautam Buddh Nagar’s District Magistrate Suhas L Yathiraj said legal action has been taken in the case.
Similar incident by politician Shrikant Tyagi
The latest incident came to light as the Tyagi community held a mahapanchayat in Noida on Sunday to show support for imprisoned politician Shrikant Tyagi who has been tried for assaulting a woman and abusing state government symbols on his car.
Tyagi was arrested from Meerut on August 9 after being in hiding for four days since assaulting and abusing a woman who was co-resident of his Grand Omaxe community in Sector 93B.
Until he went underground on August 5, Tyagi claimed to be a BJP official, but the party had denied any ties to him.
