According to the FIR, amid CrPC 144 restrictions, the protesters had disrupted people's movement on the road and also "instilled fear and terror" among the society residents with their act.

On Tuesday evening, scores of Tyagi community members from Noida, Ghaziabad, Meerut, Hapur and other places had gathered on the service lane outside the Grand Omaxe society in Sector 93B and stayed there till Wednesday evening before calling off the protest.

There are many residents who have encroached common area of the society but only Shrikant Tyagi's property was bulldozed and his plants removed," Dharmendra Tyagi, who came from Ghaziabad, had told PTI on Wednesday.
