Families of arrested men allege frame-up, move court

GREATER NOIDA: The family of Akash Tyagi — whose along with another relative Bunty Tyagi in sparked a controversy with two videos emerging to suggest otherwise — has approached the court, seeking that an FIR be lodged against the six policemen involved in the case, including two sub-inspectors.
Akash’s father Sushil Tyagi filed the application in the court of the chief judicial magistrate of Surajpur on Monday, claiming knives were planted on the duo by the police “to frame them in a false case”. The court will hear the matter on December 18.

“The youths were locked up in the police station and we were told to give Rs 50,000 to save them otherwise, they will be framed in so many cases that their entire lives will be spent in court cases,” read the application filed in the court.

Jagdish Tyagi, advocate for Akash, said, “The court has intimated the Bisrakh police station, saying that a complaint has been received against the six accused cops and the matter has been listed for hearing on December 18. The police will have to submit a report on that date.”

On November 25, TOI had reported about glaring discrepancies in the version of the police and that by the family of the accused on the arrests on November 15.

While police claimed to have nabbed the duo, along with three other youths, from the roundabout in Bisrakh around 6.10pm on November 15 for their alleged involvement in cases of robbery, two videos had subsequently emerged purportedly showing that Akash was arrested from the company where he was working around 1am earlier that night.

While Akash has been booked under sections 414 assisting in concealment of stolen property) and 482 (punishment for using a false property mark) of the IPC, Bunty has been slapped charges under sections 414, 482 of the IPC and 25 of the Arms Act.

Satyendra Rai, PRO, Gautam Budh Nagar police, said a report will be sent to the court before the date of hearing. “Any details will be revealed after that.”
