Delhi court has rejected bail to Tahir Hussain, the prime accused in the Delhi riots case
Bengaluru: The Karkardooma Court has refused to grant bail to AAP leader Tahir Hussain in the Delhi riots case.
As reported by a popular website, the Delhi Court said that the riots were the result of a deep-rooted conspiracy and was carried out in an organised manner. Delhi court added that the role of Hussain is also being investigated and his connection to other members of Pinjra Tod, Jamia Co-ordination Committee, United Against Hate group etc are being probed.
The court asserted that, prima facie, there is involvement of AAP councillor Tahir Hussain the deep-rooted conspiracy that resulted in the gruesome Delhi riots that claimed the lives of over 50 people and left hundreds injured.
He is also accused of playing a significant role in the murder of Ankit Sharma, an IB officer.
The Delhi police had filed a charge sheet against him in this regard.
The charge sheet alleges a “deep rooted conspiracy” behind Sharma’s murder in which 10 people have been arrested so far.
More details of the charge sheet:
Sharma 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.
Ankit Sharma was murdered outside Hussain’s house in Khajuri Khas area.
The bloodstained knife used to stab Ankit Sharma was found along with the bloodstained clothes of the killer. The blood found on the clothes was that of Ankit Sharma. It adds that another knife used in the crime was also recovered.
A note on Sharma’s funeral
His funeral turned out to be a massive display of patriotism as ‘Vande Mataram’, ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ were chanted.
Apart from them, ‘Shaheed Ankit Amar Rahe’ and ‘Desh Ke Shahido Ki Jai’ were also shouted.
Interestingly, ‘NRC lagoo karo’, ‘CAA lagoo karo’, also found a mention in the funeral.
Reports had then stated that as he came home that day, he went out to get a sense of what was happening. But he was confronted by a mob, which he found very difficult to handle.
It’s alleged that the AAP leader’s terrace was converted into a storehouse of weapons, stones, petrol bombs and even acid packets.
Several of his neighbours further alleged that a mob congregated at his terrace and began throwing stones at others.
As news reports of his role in the murder of the IB officer emerged, he absconded. Though the AAP tried its best to protect him, his position eventually became untenable.
