AAP Suspends Tahir Hussain After Murder Charge In IB Staffer Ankit Sharma’s Death Case

Darpan News Desk, 27 Feb, 2020

    Aam Aadmi Party councillor Tahir Hussain was suspended from party membership on Thursday after he was charged with murder in connection with the death of Intelligence Bureau (IB) employee, Ankit Sharma.

     

    Sharma’s body was recovered from Delhi’s Chand Bagh amid violence in the area over the Citizenship Amendment Act. Hussain has been booked under section 302 IPC (Punishment for murder) at Dayalpur police station.


    Sharma’s family accused Hussain of being behind the death. The councillor, however, has denied the allegations as “baseless” and called for an impartial probe.


    The Delhi Police has registered a murder case against AAP Counciller Tahir Hussain in the killing of IB staffer Ankit Sharma, sources said on Thursday.


    The case has been registered on the basis of a complaint given by Sharma's father and Hussain has been booked under section 302 (Murder) among other sections of the Indian Penal Code.

     


    Sharma's body was recovered on Wednesday from a sewer in Jafarabad and the autopsy report on Thursday said that he was brutally stabbed to death. His family has alleged Hussain's supporters brutally assaulted Sharma and killed him.


    People in the neighbourhood have alleged that the AAP leader played an active role in the riots that engulfed the area since Sunday.


    Also the house of Hussain, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) municipal councillor from Nehru Vihar, in Chand Bagh still has a number of petrol bomb bottles, acid pouches, and stones scattered on the rooftop and inside.


    Hussain's house has come under the scanner after a number of videos on social media showed over 100 to 150 people pelting stones, throwing petrol bombs and acid on Monday and Tuesday afternoon.


    Delhi Chief Minister Thursday said that any person found guilty of inciting violence in the national capital should be awarded stringent punishment, irrespective of the party he or she belongs to. Kejriwal also said that the punishment should be doubled if the accused is from his party.


    Replying to a question on AAP councillor’s Tahir Hussain’s alleged involvement in the violence, he said, “Police is not under me or I would have. Be it people from AAP, BJP or Congress, those who fanned the communal fire, those who orchestrated riots, should all be punished even if it is someone from my cabinet.”
