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 argued that he was innocent and faced the trial. Directing the prosecution to produce witnesses, the court fixed the hearing for February 10.
