New Delhi: a few hours after the Delhi Special Cell Police arrested the name “Salman” aka “Nanhe” in the case of the murder of Intelligence Bureau (IB) officer Ankit Sharma during the violence north-east of Delhi, the accused revealed some chilling details about the crime.
Sources in the special cell told ZEE News that the killers knew that Sharma was an employee of the intelligence office and that his murder was planned for conspiracy.
Sources also revealed that the defendant stabbed Sharma 14 times, and rioters later dragged him to the suspended AAP Tahir councilor’s home. Sharma was brutally attacked and tortured before his body was thrown into a sewer near his home in the northeast of Chand Bagh.
Previously a Sharma’s autopsy report said: “Multiple abrasion … deep cut .. from sharp-edged objects.” The group of doctors, who carried out the post mortem, clearly stated that he was brutally and repeatedly stabbed, leading to his death.
While Delhi police sources reported that they also found some videos related to the Ankit Sharma murder case through which the accused are identified. The videos emerged after the Delhi police called on people to send videos. The videos were taken from some of the locals there.
Meanwhile, two people close to the suspended Aam Aadmi (AAP) party adviser, Tahir Hussain, have been arrested for rioting. Both accused were named along with Tahir Hussain in the presented FIR riot episodes.
Delhi police arrested the former AAP leader last week in connection with the murder of Ankit Sharma when he reached a Delhi court to surrender.
In a FIR against Hussain, Delhi police had booked the expelled AAP adviser for Sharma’s murder and incitement to violence in north-east Delhi.
The suspended AAP leader was sent to seven-day police custody on March 6 in connection with the case. The Karkardooma court had previously dismissed the suspended AAP leader’s bail application.
Hussain was named IB staff by the family in the FIR filed, who accused him of killing the 26-year-old.
Delhi in violence resulted in the death of at least 52 people and left over 200 injured last month.
