‘Hatemonger’ Owaisi files petition in HC

HYDERABAD:  Majilis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, who was involved in a hate speech controversy and facing police notices to appear before them, on Monday filed a petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court praying for dismissal of all the cases filed against him in different police stations.
Owaisi also requested the court to direct the police not to arrest him.
Owaisi was summoned by the Nirmal Police for investigation into his inflammatory speech against Hinduism and Hindu gods to appear before the investigation officers.
However, he could not go there earlier in the day and sought four days time for his appearance through his lawyers. He said in the letter given to the SHO in Nirmal Police Station through his  lawyers that he was unwell and he went to London only for medical treatment.
Owaisi’s lawyers, who appeared before the Nirmal Police, avoided the media.
They managed to escape the attention of the large group of mediapersons gathered at the police station.
