When ordered for framing of charges, Trial Court Judge Amitabh Rawat said that there is enough evidence on record, prima facie, to raise suspicion against the defendant for framing charge against him and for proceeding with the trial of the case.According to the Court, a charge has been filed against Tahir Hussain for a money laundering offence committed under Section 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, that is punishable by Section 4 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.According to the content of the case and the accompanying papers and statements, it emerges, prima facie, that Tahir Hussain was involved in money laundering as described in the aforesaid paragraphs, under the PMLA.According to the court, the proceeds of crime created in the scheme were used for demonstrations.

In the trial court earlier, advise Rizwan's counsel said that no case of money laundering has been ruled against him.The Enforcement Directorate probe, according to him, is based on an alleged transaction of Rs.20,000 per transaction.Tahir Hussain is one of the prime suspects in connection with North East Delhi Violence in February 2020, according to the Delhi Police.
