Delhi riots: AAP leader Tahir Hussain being investigated by ED over money laundering charges, PFI links under the scanner too

Radical Islamist organisation the Popular Front of India (PFI) had recently come out in support of the AAP leader Tahir Hussain and claimed that he had been a victim of “vicious politics”.

The Enforcement Directorate has booked suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillor Tahir Hussain, arrested for the brutal murder of IB sleuth Ankit Sharma, for inciting riots in the Delhi, and the Radical Islamist group Popular Front of India (PFI) and some others on charges of money laundering and alleged funding of the recent anti-Hindu riots in Delhi, officials said on Wednesday.

The central probe agency has also filed a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Tahir Hussain. His alleged links with the Popular Front of India (PFI) are also being investigated.

Similar charges have also been pressed against the Popular Front of India (PFI) which is already facing a separate PMLA probe. 

Moreover, the Delhi Police Crime Branch have arrested Irshad, Abid and Shahdab. All are residents of Mustafabad. They were allegedly with the suspended AAP Councilor Tahir Hussain on the day of violence (February 24) and are said to be very close to him.

Prior to this, the Delhi Police had apprehended Tarik Rizwi, Liaqat and Riyasat in connection with Delhi riots and had interrogated one for hiding murder accused Tahir Hussain.

The AAP leader Tahir Hussain is currently under police custody. Tahir Hussain had gone missing soon after the FIR was registered against him for his direct involvement in the murder of Ankit Sharma, on the complaint of Ankit’s family. The Delhi police had filed a case against the AAP leader under Section 302(a) for murder, in the Dayalpur police station of Delhi.

The role of Aam Aadmi Party leader Tahir Hussain in the brutal murder of Intelligence Bureau (IB) employee Ankit Sharma and also inciting riots in the Delhi has now been under scanner.

On February 29 (Saturday), the radical Islamist organisation, the Popular Front of India (PFI) came out in support of the AAP leader Tahir Hussain and claimed that he had been a victim of “vicious politics”. The PFI has squarely blamed the Centre for the violence in Delhi and also hit out at the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for suspending Tahir Hussain.

Earlier, a report of UP State Intelligence has revealed the role of Bhim Army and PFI in orchestrating simultaneous violence in Aligarh and Delhi.
