The retired colonel Virender Chauhan had made the complaint about the illegal structure to Noida Authority several times. As per people, the illegal structure was the real bone of contention between both of them.

According to a resident, the ADM made an illegal balcony and he also converted the garage into a proper room with a toilet and a water tank above it.

Rajesh Singh, an officer on special duty of Noida Authority told City Spidey that they removed the illegal structure at ADM’s residence after getting the permission from the high level.

The UP government has also suspended the ADM of Muzaffarnagar with immediate effect over his spat with the retired colonel in Noida.

On August 19, Noida police arrested the ADM’s gunner Rahul Nagar (28) and his household help Jitendra Awasthi (26).

CP Singh, the president of Arun Vihar society said that police arrested the ADM’s gunner and household helper but they got the bail due to the power of ADM. He said that they are still trying to get out two boys who came for army training from colonel Virender and his domestic helper on bail.
