Delhi Police arrest 23-year-old Salman in connection with Ankit Sharma’s brutal murder, IB official was stripped naked to check religion

Last week, on March 5th, the suspended AAP councillor Tahir Hussain was arrested by Delhi police. Sharma was allegedly dragged inside the house of Tahir Hussain and was tortured before his brutal murder.

Delhi police have been in a relentless pursuit to arrest the violent rioters who ran amok, engaging in arson, stone-pelting and vandalism, injuring innumerable civilians and police personnel during the recent communal riots in Delhi.

Days after apprehending AAP leader Tahir Hussain, charged for the brutal murder of the IB sleuth Ankit Sharma, the Delhi police special cell has today arrested one 23-year-old man, identified as Haseen alias Salman, a resident of Nand Nagri, in connection with the murder of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) official, who was killed during the northeast Delhi anti-Hindu riots in Khajuri Khas. Sharma’s body was recovered from a drain near Tahir Hussain’s house on February 26, a day after he went missing.

Today Delhi police revealed that the Intelligence Bureau staffer Ankit Sharma was stripped before his killing. As per a report by ABP News, his clothes were removed to check his religion before he was brutally murdered. He had injury marks on his head, chest, and face. After his killing, an acid-like liquid was poured on Ankit Sharma to conceal his identity.

According to an India TV report, the accused was operating with five names – Salman, Nanhe, Haseen, Momin and Mulla. The 23-year-old is currently in police custody at Lodhi colony.

“The arrest was made by the special cell after they received some specific information and technical evidence against Haseen, who was earlier arrested in several cases of robbery,” police sources said. Police are conducting raids to nab his four associates.

Last week, on March 5th, the suspended AAP councillor Tahir Hussain, who went missing after being charged for the brutal murder of the IB sleuth Ankit Sharma had been arrested by the Delhi Police. The Delhi police had filed a case against the AAP leader under Section 302(a) Murder, in the Dayalpur police station of Delhi. Tahir Hussain is considered to be the kingpin behind the murder of IB sleuth Ankit Sharma and the violent clashes that broke out in Delhi last month.

The family of the deceased Ankit Sharma had accused AAP leader Tahir Hussain and his Muslim mob of dragging their son and brutally murdering him.

A day after Sharma’s family alleged his role in the riots and his murder, many crates of petrol bombs and stones were found on the rooftop of the AAP leader. A Delhi court sent Hussain on seven-day police custody.

Today, in another major breakthrough, the Special Investigation Teams (SIT) had arrested seven people in connection with the murder of Delhi Police Head Constable Ratan Lal during the recent Delhi anti-Hindu Riots. As per a report by India TV, the names of the suspects are Salim Malik, Mohammad Jalauddin, Mohammad Yunus, Mohammad Ayub, Arif, Danish and Mohammad Salim Khan.

As per the report, of the seven, six are residents of Chand Bagh area which is right across Yamuna Vihar where HC Ratan Lal was murdered. This punches a hole in the theory that the rioting mob had come from outside of Delhi. Earlier in the day, the Delhi Police in a press briefing informed that till now 712 FIRs have been registered and over 200 accused have been arrested. The police further informed that technology such as face recognition software is being used to identify people.
