Unrelated Weapons Seizure Falsely Linked To Delhi Riots

BOOM found that the set of images were unrelated and from 2016 when Gujarat police busted an illegal weapons racket.

Claim

"Weapons were found in the house of Tahir Hussain, the so-called peacekeeper of Delhi. This is a picture of a house, Think about how many such houses will be there? Hang the terrorist #Tahir_Husain."

Fact

The images are from 2016 when Gujarat police busted an illegal weapons racket operating out of a hotel and not from suspended Aam Aadmi Party councilor Tahir Hussain's house in North East Delhi. The last photograph of guns lying on the ground is from a ‘kirpan’ factory in Patiala, Punjab according to an India Toady article. The same set of images were earlier viral with the false claim that weapons were seized from a mosque in Gujarat and mosques in Jammu And Kashmir. BOOM had earlier debunked these image on July 24, 2019.
