The Income Tax department today conducted raids at four locations linked to Yashpal Tyagi, former OSD at Noida Authority, Greater Noida Authority and Yamuna Expressway Authority.

Tyagi was appointed as the OSD by the BSP supremo Mayawati when she was in power between 2007 and 2012.

The raids were conducted early this morning at four locations in Sector 50, reports said, adding that the searches were still underway. 

Tyagi is accused of favouring builders and giving them rebate in allotment of lands. For all favours, he had charged a hefty amount from the builders. 

He is brother of Rajpal Tyagi, a former minister in the Mayawati government. His name was also mired in Rs 500 crore farmhouse scam.

More details awaited.
