In a significant development, reports have been emerging from the Delhi Police’s sleuths about foreign funding for the Delhi riots in February. In their investigation, the Delhi Police have found that funds were received from the United Kingdom, Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) just before the riots.
The Special Cell team received the shocking information from one of the accused Miran Haider who is also a member of Jamia Coordination Committee. He was arrested in April and slapped Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) in a case related to the violence.
The police team recovered a register from Haider that revealed such shocking facts including foreign funding for instigating riots in Delhi. The register had recorded that funds were transferred from countries such as Oman, the UK and UAE. And as per reports, just before the riots, an amount of Rs 5 lakh were transferred to Haider’s account.
The retrieved documents have been sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for handwriting analysis.
