New Delhi, May 15 : Even as the Central and the city governments are yet to decide on the movement of public transport after May 17, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot on Friday planned for the SOPs with contactless ticketing in the buses and Metro.

In a series of tweets, Gahlot said he discussed SOPs for safe opening of Delhi Metro and buses with officials of the Delhi Transport Department, DTC and Metro among others.

“If central government allows, Delhi is confident of running public transport,” he said.

Gahlot said that social distancing, contactless ticketing and disinfection will be the three pillars of the strategy to run public transport safely.

“And all of this will be possible only if people of Delhi cooperate. Delhi will be back on its feet only if people and the government work together,” he added.

On Thursday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal gave hints on opening public transport in Delhi and have also suggested the same to the Centre.

The Centre is planning to allow more relaxations in the lockdown 4.0 starting from May 18.

Tahir Hussain

New Delhi, July 13 : A Delhi court on Monday dismissed the bail application of suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillor, Tahir Hussain, in connection with the murder of Intelligence Bureau (IB) staffer Ankit Sharma.

Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav observed, “There is enough material on record to presume that the applicant was present at the spot of crime and was exhorting the rioters of a particular community and as such, he did not use his hands and fists, but rioters as ”human weapons”.”

Intelligence Bureau (IB) staffer Ankit Sharma was killed in Chand Bagh area during the northeast Delhi violence on February 25. His body was recovered from the drain and had 51 sharp and blunt injuries on it.

The court further said that there is a possibility that if Hussain is released on bail at this stage, he may tamper with the evidence or threaten the witnesses.

Hussain, who is in judicial custody since March, had sought bail on the grounds that there is no cogent evidence to connect him to the alleged murder of Sharma.

Besides this, the court also noted that Hussain”s involvement is being investigated upon with regard to his connection with members of PFI, Pinjratod, Jamia Co-ordination Committee, United Against Hate Group and anti-CAA protesters.

“Riots in the area of northeast Delhi were carried out in an organized manner and as part of the deep-rooted conspiracy,” said the sessions judge while denying bail to Hussain.

Hussain has also been booked under the stringent anti-terror law — Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, in a case related to alleged conspiracy in the riots.
