Charge sheet filed against Tahir Hussain, 14 others


Police in charge file said Hussain admitted involvement in violence

New Delhi:

Delhi police on Tuesday filed a charge against suspended AAP counselor Tahir Hussain and 14 others before a Karkardooma court in connection with the violence that occurred in the Chand Bagh region, northeast of Delhi , in February of this year.

According to the 1,030-page charge sheet, Hussain was the alleged mastermind who organized the violence in the region for which he spent about Rs 1.30 crore. Tahir Hussain’s brother, along with 15 others, also were named as accused in this case.

Few facts that emerged during the course of the investigation indicate the conspiracy of large-scale riots hatched by the main defendant Tahir Hussain, indicated the file of accusation deposited in the court.

The charges will be examined by the court on June 16.

He said Hussain had also met Umar Khalid and Khalid Saifi and others who had participated in the protest against the Citizenship Law (CAA) before the violence. The purpose of the meeting remains to be determined.

Police in the charge file said that Hussain acknowledged his involvement in the violence and also admitted that he was present on the terrace of his house at the time of the incident.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch entered 75 witnesses on the charge sheet.

The source of the gasoline bombs found on the terrace of Tahir Hussain has not yet been discovered, according to the prosecution file, adding that he had 100 live ammunition, of which 64 munitions and 22 shells were recovered.

Hussain did not respond where the 22 shells were used or where the other 14 ammunition are located, the statement said. Other than that, a relative of Hussain’s by the name of Gulfam had purchased on January 31 100 live ammunition, of which only seven were recovered by the police, the document said.

Police said it was clear that the bullets were used during the violence.

In February earlier this year, clashes broke out in northeast Delhi between groups supporting and opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which killed at least 53 people.

According to police, more than 700 FIRs have been lodged and the SIT investigating the case has arrested and detained more than 2,500 people, including the suspended PAA adviser, Tahir Hussain, in connection with these cases.
