The ED argued that arms purchases were made for the riots with about Rs 1.25 billion. According to the ED, Tahir Hussain and his associates raised one crore ten million rupees. The money collected for the riots was used in fake sit-in demonstrations in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act through a fake company.

The charge sheet states that in this case Tahir Hussain was supported by a person named Amit Gupta, in whose name a fake company was opened. In February, 53 people lost their lives in the rioting, while more than two hundred people were seriously injured.
