The First Information Report (FIR) in the matter was registered by Ankit Sharma’s father, Ravinder Kumar, on February 26, 2020.
He alleged that demonstrations by anti-CAA and pro-CAA protesters went on for 2-3 days at Chand Bagh Pulia, Main Karawal Nagar Road, in which incidents of stone pelting, brick batting, arson, firing and sabotage had taken place from both sides.
He claimed that Hussain, the then Municipal Councilor whose office was nearby, had gathered a lot of goons in his office. With their help, he had pelted stones, petrol bombs and also fired shots from the rooftop of the office, creating an atmosphere of fear among the public.
Ravinder further alleged that on February 25, 2020, his son went out to buy household goods but did not return for a long time, prompting him to file a missing persons complaint.
He was informed by locals that a boy had been thrown into the Khajuri Khas nala from the Masjid of Chand Bagh pulia after he was killed. Subsequently, Ankit’s body was recovered from Khajuri Khas nala near Chand Bagh Pulia.
In his complaint, Ravinder raised strong suspicion that his son was killed by Tahir Hussain and his goons, who had gathered in his office and after killing his son, threw his body in a drain from the mosque at Chand Bagh.
