New Delhi Feb 28: BJP MP Gautam Gambhir this afternoon reacted sharply to allegations against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Tahir Hussain after his name emerged in the killing of an employee of Intelligence Bureau, found dead in drain on Wednesday in northeast Delhi’s Jaffrabad.
Ankit Sharma, 26, was allegedly killed in a mob attack on Tuesday as violence spiralled in northeast Delhi over controversial citizenship law. At least 35 people have been killed, over 200 have been injured since clashes first broke out in parts of the national capital on Sunday.
After his body was recovered on Wednesday, Ankit’s father, Ravinder Sharma, who also works with the Intelligence Bureau, accused supporters of AAP’s Tahir Hussain of attacking Ankit and killing him.
Speaking to NDTV, Ankit Sharma’s neighbours also alleged that stones and petrol bombs had been thrown from the roof of the five-storey building owned by Mr Hussain.
In a tweet this afternoon, BJP’s Gautam Gambhir said that if allegations are proven true, “public, law, god won’t forgive” Tahir Hussain.
“Killing IB’s Ankit Sharma, throwing his body in a drain, giving shelters to those indulging in violence and throwing petrol bombs… these are the allegations against a public representative.
If these allegations are proven true, then public, law, god won’t forgive Tahir Hussain,” the 38-year-old wrote in Hindi.
“Arvind Kejriwal, your silence is deafening,” he further said.
