The re-elected Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said that “if any person is found guilty of participating in mob violence should be given severe punishment,” he also added that if they (the culprit) are from the Aam Admi Party (AAP) then the penalty should be doubled.
The Delhi incident
The AAP chief’s announcement comes in hours after his party MLA Mohammed Tahir Hussain was accused to be part of the Delhi violence.
Earlier in the day, cases of petrol bombs and bags full of stones were found from the rooftop of Tahir Hussain’s residence. Several videos and pictures are circulated in social media where it can be seen how MLA’s followers seem to be pelting stones and throwing petrol bombs from the terrace of his house.

BJP leader Kapil Mishra has also alleged that the AAP is defending Hussain who is reportedly involved in the North-East Delhi violence.
Well, the trouble doesn’t end here, it is also reported that IB officer Ankit Sharma’s family sees AAP’s Mr. Hussain as the number one suspect in the killing of their son. They have alleged that their son was killed by the mob who were pelting stones from the building that belongs to Tahir Hussain in Chand Bagh area of the North-East Delhi.
Looking at the situation, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has said strongly that if any person was found guilty of participating in mob violence will be given strict punishment. Moreover, the penalty will be doubled if they are from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
“Anyone who is caught guilty in the disastrous events in Delhi should be given harsh punishment. If any Aam Aadmi Party person is found sinful then that person should be given double the punishment. There should be no politics on the issue of national security,” Kejriwal said.
