Delhi Violence: A day after he was suspended from primary membership of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the party’s councillor and an accused in the murder of an Intelligence Bureau (IB) staffer, Tahir Hussain has now gone missing, Times Now has reported.
The Delhi Police had, on February 27, lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against Hussain and had charged him with the kidnapping and murder of IB officer Ankit Sharma. According to the FIR, Sharma went missing on February 25 after he came home from work.
Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday responded to allegations that a leader of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Tahir Hussain, was involved in the killing of Ankit Sharma, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) employee who was found dead in one of the areas in northeast Delhi most affected by violence over citizenship law protests.
“No one, be it any party, should be spared if they are responsible for inciting violence. Even if he is a part of my cabinet, he should be punished. If anyone from AAP is found guilty, they should get double the punishment,” the Delhi Chief Minister told reporters, asked about Tahir Hussain.
The communal violence that started with stone pelting between pro- and anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) groups in the Jaffrabad area on February 23 afternoon, has so far claimed 42 lives and left over 300 injured.
