Not only did he arrange the funding for the riots but also held meeting with several people and groups thereby setting the roadmap for the Delhi riots. 15 other people have been named as the accused along with Tahir Hussain and his brother in the 1030 pages long charge-sheet which has been filed on the basis of testimonies provided by more than 75 witnesses.
The trail led crime branch officials to 2016 Jaffrabad riots from where the entire episode seems to have begun. As per the details provided by the police, women protestors who were part of the 2016 riots were sent text messages asking them to participate this time too and were given necessary instructions through these messages. It has also been revealed that Tahir Hussain retrieved his pistol exactly on the eve of the riots from the police station where it had been deposited earlier. In a well-planned conspiracy Tahir Hussain who knew fully well that US President Donald Trump would be present in the city got back his pistol, shut off CCTVs (closed circuit television) cameras installed near his residence and also held meetings with JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) tukde-tukde gang members like Umar Khalid.
It has also been learnt that the rioters intended to target the Lutyens zone but due to the presence of police in the area, the mob shifted to communally sensitive areas where they focused on religious places where their sinister plans could be put to effect. The charge-sheet also mentions that Tahir Hussain was the master mind of the riots in Chand Bagh and was present in his Chand Bagh house from where he was directing the rioters. Both he and his younger brother Shah Alam were involved in the entire planning and execution. Molotov cocktail bottles, huge amount of bricks and stone pieces, catapults, acid pouches and petrol bomb bottles were recovered from Hussain’s residence. Hussain was also in constant touch with Khalid Saifi and Umar Khalid who were among those organising the Delhi riots.
The Delhi riots that broke out following the passage of Citizenship Amendment Act left 53 people dead including an Intelligence Bureau official Ankit Sharma.
