As per Hindustan Times, “Both incidents took place on February 24 and two separate FIRs were registered on February 27. In the first case, it has been established in the charge sheet based on electronic evidence and on the statements of the eyewitnesses that Tahir Hussain led a mob into a godown of essential commodities in Karawal Nagar and set it afire. The owner of the godown claimed a loss of worth Rs 25-30 lakhs. Tahir Hussain and five others were later arrested for the offence.”
“There were food preparations going on in there for a marriage function. Hussain and others destroyed the food prepared and then threw petrol bombs into the parking area where several vehicles were parked at the time. All the vehicles parked in Pradeep Parking lot were gutted,” the website quoted a police officer.
Tahir Hussain is also accused in the murder of IB officer Ankit Sharma during the Delhi riots.
He was stabbed 51 times and his body thrown in a drain, an act captured in a video filmed by a person from the rooftop of a house in the locality. Sharma’s body was fished out two days later from the drain.
