In June, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided 6 locations of Tahir Hussain, accused of rioting in the country’s capital earlier this year. ED had filed a case of money laundering against Tahir. He has been accused of massive funding in the riots. It is alleged that Tahir has many cell companies. The ED had registered a case under the PMLA about a month and a half ago, alleging that it had financed about Rs 1 crore 16 lakh in cash for anti-CAA protests and riots using fake companies. The locations in Delhi that were raided included four places in North East Delhi.
