New Delhi, March 4: The name of expelled Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Councillor Mohd Tahir Hussain has been mentioned in two more FIRs, though not as an accused, in connection with the violence that raged for four days in north-east Delhi last week. According to officials, the FIRs in which Hussain has been named were registered at Dayalpur and Khajoori Khas police stations.
Meanwhile, a Delhi court earlier today deferred the hearing on the anticipatory bail plea of Hussain, who is currently absconding, in an FIR lodged against him in the alleged killing of Intelligence Bureau (IB) officer Ankit Sharma. The expelled Councillor is an accused in the FIR lodged over the killing of Sharma, whose body was recovered from a drain in Chand Bagh on February 26 during the violence in northeast Delhi.
