Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi, who returned to Hyderabad from London early Monday, has moved Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking quashing of the cases against him in various police stations over his alleged hate speeches.
Hours after seeking four days’ time to appear before police in Nirmal town of Adilabad district, Owaisi filed a petition in the high court, seeking orders to strike down cases booked against him at the direction of lower courts.
The petition is likely to come up for hearing in two days.
Earlier, Adilabad police confirmed that the MIM leader through his lawyers sought more time on the ground of ill-health. Two lawyers, who reached Nirmal police station on behalf of Owaisi, submitted the doctors’ report.
Top police officials said they were looking into the authenticity of the doctors’ report and, if necessary, would depute government doctors to examine the legislator.
