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

Charges have been framed against accused Tahir Hussain for offenses under Section 3 of the Money Laundering Act punishable under Section 4 of the PMLA. On being asked by Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat, the accused pleaded his innocence to face the trial. Directing the prosecution to produce witnesses, the court fixed the hearing for February 10.

The court had earlier said that prima facie there is sufficient material on record to frame the charge, which raises serious doubts against Hussain. The court had said that it was clear that Tahir and others used the money received from various sources during the riots to carry out the riots.
