Anti-Hindu riots: Delhi police nabs five more accused in connection with Ankit Sharma’s murder

The five accused arrested by the Delhi police have been identified as Firoz, Javed, Gulfam, Shoyaib, Anas.

The Delhi Police on Saturday arrested five more accused in connection with the brutal murder of Intelligence Bureau official Ankit Sharma during the anti-Hindu riots in the national capital, reports ANI.

According to the reports, the five accused arrested by the Delhi police have been identified as Firoz, Javed, Gulfam, Shoyaib, Anas. One Salman was already in custody.

These arrests come just two days after Delhi police special cell had arrested one 23-year-old man, identified as Haseen alias Salman, a resident of Nand Nagri, in connection with the murder of the Ankit Sharma who was killed during the northeast Delhi anti-Hindu riots in Khajuri Khas. 

The dead body of an Intelligence Bureau constable was recovered from a drain in North East Delhi amidst anti-Hindu riots in the national capital. AAP leader Tahir Hussain is also accused in the murder. The violent mob had allegedly dragged Sharma into the house of Hussain, brutally tortured him for hours and them dumped his body in a nearby drain. Hussain’s brother Shah Alam has also been arrested.

Following the brutal murder, the Delhi Police special cell had apprehended AAP leader Tahir Hussain. On March 5th, the suspended AAP councillor Tahir Hussain had gone missing after being charged for the brutal murder of the IB sleuth Ankit Sharma. However, he was nabbed 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.

Following the arrest, the Delhi police had revealed that the Intelligence Bureau staffer Ankit Sharma was stripped before his killing. The Muslim mob had removed his clothes to check his religion before he was brutally murdered.
