Speaking on the matter, Noida Police Commissioner Alok Singh said, 12 Police teams were resourced to nab Tyagi. He mentioned that the Police were continuously tracking him but he was using tech like Radio and electronic silence to hide.
“He (Shrinkant Tyagi) was rapidly changing his location as well as his vehicles. That’s why he managed to hide for four days. It was a challenging assignment for us. We overcame all the challenges. Human intel and technical intel were used to track him. His associates Nakul Tyagi, Sanjay and a driver named Rahul were helping him,” Mr Singh said.
“It is the police who reached out to the victim first. Had she contacted us on time, we would have caught him,” further added.
