New Delhi, October 22

The riots in northeast Delhi in February were the "worst communal riots since Partition" in the Capital, observed a local court while dismissing the bail pleas (in three cases) of former AAP councillor Tahir Hussain, who allegedly abused his power to foment communal violence.

Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav said there was enough material on record to presume that Tahir was present at the crime spot and exhorted rioters of a community. He said the spread of riots on such a big scale was not possible without a “premeditated conspiracy”. — PTI
