swamy ib 28022020New Delhi: Days after Intelligence Bureau staffer Ankit Sharma’s body was recovered from a canal in Delhi’s riot-hit north-east area and the autopsy confirmed multiple stabs on his body, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy gave a very different spin to the already murky murder case.

Swamy alleged, AAP councillor Tahir Hussain whose role in the riot is being probed, has ‘connections’ with Bangladeshi terrorists. He tweeted: “The govt needs to clarify if IB officer Sharma was targeted and killed at the behest of AAP’s Tahir because Sharma was tailing him for Tahir’s Bangladesh terrorists connection. If true, it becomes a very, very serious matter.”

However, Hussain has denied his involvement. He said, “I was the target and not the attacker. Tell me: will any rioter allow the police to enter his house if he is involved?”

Hussain’s remarks came after a number of videos surfaced on social media, showing people allegedly throwing petrol bombs and stones from the rooftop of his building. Delhi Police have sealed Hussain’s house besides registering a case against him.

In one such video, Hussain is seen holding a wooden stick with smoke rising from his building. Admitting that he was seen in the video, he clarified that the video was of February 24.

Following the central government’s directives, a detailed action plan has been prepared by the crack team of the IB and Delhi Police.

On Thursday night, AAP suspended Hussain from the party’s primary membership.
