‘By using muscle power and political clout, Tahir Hussain spread violence, its whereabouts become hub of riots’

A Delhi court refused to grant bail to Tahir Hussain, the main accused and suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councilor of the February 2020 riots in the northeastern part of the capital. Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav heard the 2 FIRs registered in connection with the shooting of the victims named Pramod and Prince Bansal. His medical report from the ‘Susrata Trauma Center’ was presented before the court.

Judge Vinod Yadav said that it is not possible to spread riots in such a short time on such a large scale without any pre-planned conspiracy. The court said that when the accused is surrounded in these cases, he cannot escape directly by saying that he had not been physically involved in these riots, so he has no hand in it. The court found that Tahir Hussain used his ‘muscle power and political reach’ to spread communal violence in the area.

Tahir Hussain argued in his defense in the court that he belongs to AAP and became trapped under the circumstances. He claimed that he was stuck in the middle of a political battle. He termed the allegations against him as part of the political allegation-counter-accusation to tarnish his image of himself. He claimed that there was no concrete or legal evidence against him in these cases.

Tahir Hussain argued in his favor that no video evidence of his involvement in riots or property damage cases was available. He pleaded with the court that there was no one behind him to take care of his wife, 2 minor children and a school going son. The opposing side argued that a group of a certain community knew that the police would be busy protecting them due to the visit of the then US President Donald Trump, so the time was chosen.

The court considered that the riot mob was armed with dangerous weapons. The court said that the rioting mob had targeted looting, demolition of public and private properties and arson besides damaging the life and property of a community. The court remarked that in such a situation it would not be fair to say that the target of the main accused was different from that of the rioting crowd. The court told the police that there may be a delay in recording the statements of witnesses, as it is a difficult task to mark witnesses in such cases.

By the court Said that The rioters were in a position to mobilize against a particular community and legal agencies. He did all this to register his community’s presence, to create an atmosphere of terror and chaos, and to destabilize law and order, so that the central government succumbed to his demands. The court said that this riot came as a wound in the way of India’s emergence as a global power.

The court made stern remarks that the charges against Tahir Hussain were serious and even if there was no direct violence, he could not run away from the sections against him. The court also considered that Tahir Hussain’s whereabouts made Delhi the hub of communal riots in many areas. The court stated that all this was pre-planned. Carried out under a well-planned plot.
