Adilabad (Andhra Pradesh), Jan 12: Police in Andhra Pradesh’s Adilabad District on Saturday questioned Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, who was earlier booked for alleged sedition and criminal conspiracy for his “hate speech”, a day after getting his five-day custody from a court here in Andhra Pradesh.
Nirmal town police had registered a case against Owaisi, and arrested him from Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad on Jan ary 8. He was later remanded in 14-day judicial custody.
A court in Nirmal town had on Friday sent the 42-year-old legislator from Chandrayanagutta in Hyderabad to police remand to facilitate his questioning.
Accordingly, a police team took Owaisi’s custody from the Adilabad district jail and brought him to Armed Reserve Office here where he was being questioned in the presence of one of his lawyers and a doctor.
FIRs were registered at Adilabad and Nizamabad districts after the legislator had used allegedly inflammatory and derogatory language against a particular community during his public speeches last month. (ANI)
