Delhi Violence: Tahir Hussain Moves Delhi Court Seeking Anticipatory Bail

Delhi violence: Tahir Hussain was named in the murder of IB employee Ankit Sharma.

New Delhi:

Suspended AAP councillor Tahir Hussain on Tuesday moved a Delhi court seeking anticipatory bail in a case lodged in connection with alleged killing of Intelligence Bureau (IB) official Ankit Sharma.

District and Sessions Judge Sudhir Kumar Jain will hear his application on Wednesday.

Mr Hussain has been booked in the murder case of the IB staffer in northeast Delhi amid violence over the new citizenship law last week.

Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had then suspended him for his alleged involvement in the violence.
