BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has suspended their leader Tahir Hussain, whose name has cropped up in connection with the death of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) employee Ankit Sharma, who was found dead in Northeast Delhi. Hussain has also been booked for arson and murder in Delhi violence. Crates of stones and petrol bombs were allegedly found on the rooftop of the AAP leader. A case has been registered at Dayalpur police station.
Ankit’s body was found in a drain near his home in Jafrabad. He was allegedly attacked by a mob and then stabbed to death on his way home on Tuesday. After the body was recovered on Wednesday, Ankit’s father Ravinder Sharma, also an IB employee alleged that the supporter of Hussain had killed his son.
In fact, BJP leader Kapil Sharma had also accused Hussain of being involved in the death of Ankit. Now, Mishra is said to be also involved in the instigation of the Delhi violence especially his pro-CAA rally and hate speech.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court has granted the Centre a four weeks’ time to file their response while hearing the pleas to lodge FIRs against hate speeches by BJP leaders and arrests in Northeast Delhi communal violence.
Earlier on Thursday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that no one will be spared if found guilty and if anyone from his party is involved, the punishment will be double. “Any person who is found guilty should be given stringent punishment. If any Aam Aadmi Party person is found guilty then that person should be given double the punishment. There should be no politics on the issue of national security,” Kejriwal said at a press meet.
Meanwhile, the Delhi violence has killed 38 people and more than 300 have been injured. The police had set up two special teams to probe the 50 cases registered in connection with the communal riots that broke out in east Delhi on Monday onwards.
