Unambiguous evidence has been emerged to show that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillor Tahir Hussain’s house terrace was indeed used for rioting through petrol bombs and stones. Hordes of bricks and petrol bomb were found on the rooftop of the councillor’s home that corroborates with the earlier video clips, in which the rioters were shown creating mayhem from the terrace.
Multiple TV channels have brought out the chilling visuals of petrol bomb and bricks on the roof of AAP councillor.
Here is a report from the Zee News.
Mirror Now correspondent Ayushmann posted these photos which show how a ‘rioting factory’ established on the terrace of AAP councillor Tahir Hussain.

But as soon as this concrete evidence of rioting emerged, the Aam Aadmi Party seems to be trying a new script to rescue its member. A narrative that ‘mobs forcefully entered Tahir’s house’ seems to be the new effort of AAP to hide its member’s alleged role in the violence. See the below statement of AAP’s Sanjay Singh.
Sanjay Singh, AAP: Tahir Hussain has already given his statement in which he said that he gave all details to police&media about mob entering his house during the violence. He had asked police for protection. Police came 8 hours late&rescued him&his family from his house. (2/2) https://t.co/AZns0p2AtW

More Than What Meets the Eye?
Several circumstantial evidences suggest that there could be a bigger reason behind the Delhi violence, and the protest against CAA was just a mask for the elements that are trying to pose a bigger security threat to the nation.
An intelligence official, Ankit Sharma, was dragged by the mob and beaten to death. His family and the locals who spoke to TV channels categorically stated that it was Tahir’s goons who forcefully took Ankit Sharma.
Now, one needs to consider the report that came in just one year ago. In December 2018, National Investigation Agency raided Delhi’s Jaffrabad, now one among the violence-hit area in Delhi. Five arrests were made at that time, including an engineering student by name Yunus. It was reported that a plot was hatched to kill top political leaders of India.
Cut to the present, the undeniable evidence of rioting emerging from the terrace of AAP councillor Tahir Hussain, the brutal murder of an intelligence official which again turning the needle of suspicion to this councillor, all put together, makes oneself wonder, whether the violence in Delhi are just communal in nature or is there a bigger threat to national security playing behind the scene?
A bit worryingly, another journalist, Rajshekhar Jha, had only yesterday pointed to a worrying news story. Sources within security agencies had been monitoring two major Uttar Pradesh mobs for their role in the Delhi riots, pointing to a larger conspiracy perhaps. The presence of Molotov cocktails and over five hundred bullet shells were reasons that raised alarm bells.
Criminal gangs of north Delhi led by Irfan Chhenu and Nasir are under scanner for their role in riots. They have a history of bloodshed in north east Delhi. Rioters fired over 500 bullets, it is estimated. Professionals involved, agencies suspect. pic.twitter.com/as2j1xRNep

Does Delhi’s rioting mob have a face? Revelations emerging from Tahir Hussain’s place seemingly provide only half an answer. Is there a face behind this face as well? What is that bigger game these faces behind the mob on the pretext of anti-CAA violence are trying to play?
These are the questions one should be aware of in these troubling times in the national capital.
