Ghaziabad: Police here has announced a
reward of Rs 5,000 on absconding district panchayat member
Deepa Tyagi who has been wanted for blackening the face of a
senior government official.
On September 1, Tyagi and her supporters reached the Kavi
Nagar-based office of Additional Chief Executive Officer
Aditya Kumar and blackened his face for his alleged apathetic
approach towards development projects of the area.
SSP Raghubir Lal also directed the police for initiating
legal action of attachment of Tyagi`s properties through court
to ensure her speedy arrest.
Meanwhile, Zila Panchayat staff and officers continued to
stage protests outside the office demanding registration of a
case against Kumar for allegedly being involved in corruption.
The issue has taken a political turn with Lok Dal also
jumping into the fray threatening to go on agitation if no
action was taken against the allegedly-tainted official soon.
