Hussain also faces a money laundering case for allegedly funding the riots.

Justice Anish Dayal passed the order on Hussain’s bail pleas filed in 2020 and 2021 after reserving it on April 10. A detailed copy of the order was awaited.

Hussain’s lawyer, Rizwan, argued all the co-accused have been granted bail and that his client was the only person in jail for the last three years.

Senior advocate Salman Khurshid argued Hussain was not named in the initial witness statements and that no specific acts have been attributed to him.

Hussain was booked for offences including the attempt to murder, rioting, mischief by fire, and criminal conspiracy.
