Ghaziabad: A government officer was assaulted here by district panchayat member Deepa Tyagi who rubbed black paint on his face for allegedly refusing to pass bills related to the development of her area.
Tyagi, accompanied by around 20 supporters, reached the office of Additional Chief Executive Officer Aditya Kumar late last evening and rubbed black paint on his face.
She alleged that Kumar had refused to pass bills for the development of her area.
However, Kumar has claimed that Tyagi attacked him as she had demanded from him commission from the cost incurred on development works which he had refused.
A criminal case has been registered against Tyagi and the others who accompanied her in Kavi Nagar police station.
District Magistrate Shashi Bhushan Kumar Susheel has been informed about the incident and he has directed the police to take action against Tyagi and the others, SSP Raghubir Lal said.
He said Tyagi`s Modi Nagar house was raided last night but she is absconding. However, attempts are being made to arrested her, he added.
Tyagi`s husband Ravindra Bhura was a criminal who was killed in a police encounter near Mohan Nagar here three years ago.
She contested the Zila Panchayat election in November last year which she won, defeating Rashmi Tyagi, daughter-in-law of UP Cabinet Minister Raj Pal Tyagi.
