    While Tyagi claimed he was a BJP member on his social media profile, the party distanced itself and said that he was not associated with the party.

    My husband would have surrendered the first day, but we were waiting for a lawyer so that we could take appropriate legal recourse. Had I not been detained at the police station, my husband would have surrendered the very next day as I could have engaged a lawyer and sought legal help, she also said.

    Anu also alleged that her staffers were subjected to third-degree torture while adding that her children too were harassed. I was not tortured physically, but mentally. The police misbehaved in every possible way, even though I was fully cooperating with the investigation. The police action against me meant that my children were at home without any supervision, she added.
