The court on Wednesday filed an indictment against former councilor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Tahir Hussain. On November 3, the court had issued an order outlining charges against Hussain in a money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the 2020 northeast Delhi riots.

Charges have been filed against the accused Tahir Hussain for offenses under Section 3 of the Money Laundering Act punishable under Section 4 of the PMLA. At the request of Judge Amitabh Rawat of Extra Sessions, the accused argued that he was innocent and awaiting trial. The court ordered the prosecution to produce witnesses and set the hearing for February 10.

The court had previously said that prima facie there is sufficient material to formulate the charge, which Hussain seriously questions. The court had said it was clear that Tahir and others used the money received from various sources during the riots to carry out the riots.
