New Delhi: In the brutal murder case of IB Officer Ankit Sharma, the Delhi police special cell on Thursday arrested one more accused, a 23 year old man, days after apprehending AAP leader Tahir Hussain.
Haseen alias Salman, a resident of Nand Nagri, was operating with five names – Salman, Nanhe, Haseen, Momin and Mulla, according to India TV report. He is currently in police custody at Lodhi colony.
“The arrest was made by the special cell after they received some specific information and technical evidence against Haseen, who was earlier arrested in several cases of robbery,” police sources said.
The sources close to Zee News revealed that the plan to kill Ankit Sharma was a pre-planned conspiracy as the aforementioned person knew that he was an employee of the Intelligence Bureau, and was tracking his movement.
Sharma was stabbed 14 times by the accused and dragged him to Tahir Hussain’s house where he suffered brutal torture.
Delhi police revealed that Ankit Sharma was stripped before his killing. As per a report by ABP News, his clothes were removed to check his religion before he was brutally murdered. He had injury marks on his head, chest, and face. After his killing, an acid-like liquid was poured on Ankit Sharma to conceal his identity.
The autopsy report states: “Multiple abrasion.. deep cut.. by sharp edge objects.” The panel of doctors, who carried out post mortem, has clearly stated that he was brutally and repeatedly stabbed, leading to his death.
Sharma’s body was then thrown into a drain near Hussain’s house in Chand Bagh.
