Tahir Hussain AAP Leader Wiki Biography News House & more
Controversy setting fire on social media over the alleged role of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Tahir Hussain in the death of IB officer Ankit Sharma, who was found dead in one of the areas in northeast Delhi most affected by four days of violence over citizenship law protests, in which 32 people have been killed.
Ankit Sharma, whose body was found in a drain near his home in Jaffrabad, was allegedly attacked by a mob and beaten to death on his way home on Tuesday.
After the body was found on Wednesday, his father Ravinder Sharma, who is also an IB employee, alleged that supporters of Tahir Hussain had killed his son. He further alleged that his son had been shot after he was beaten; the body has been sent for an autopsy.
Ankit Sharma’s neighbours also alleged that petrol bombs and stones had been thrown from the roof of the five-storey building owned by Mr Hussain.
As proof of these allegations, videos have been shared with NDTV. These show a man believed to be Mr Hussain, who is a Municipal Councilor, on the roof along with some other men; these men appear to be involved in stone-throwing.
At one point the man believed to be Mr Hussain is seen carrying a lathi.
In the videos, massive plumes of smoke seem to be billowing up directly from below the same building, suggesting Mr Hussain’s house too may have been under attack.
However, The AAP leader released a video in which he claimed his innocence.
