Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, who is reportedly in London, made a call to the police and informed them that he would appear before them shortly in connection with the cases related to his alleged hate speeches against a particular community.

Director general of police V Dinesh Reddy told mediapersons here on Saturday that Akbaruddin had informed the police on phone that he would appear before the police and clarify why he had to speak the way he did at  Nirmal in Adilabad and in Nizamabad district.

A day after the Nirmal and Nizamabad police issued notices to the MLA to appear before the inquiry officers, the Osmania police on Saturday pasted notices on Akbaruddin’s house on Road No. 12, Banjara Hills to appear before the OU police on January 10.

On Friday, the Nirmal and Nizamabad police issued notices to Akbaruddin directing him to appear before the investigation officers of the Nirmal (Rural) Police in Adilabad district on Jan 7 and the Nizambad II Town police on Jan 8.

Fresh Complaint

Meanwhile, another person lodged a fresh complaint against Akbaruddin in Vanasthalipuram police station on Saturday but the police are yet to register a case. They said they were taking legal opinion on the issue.

MIM MLA

The ABVP and BJP activists staged protests on Saturday demanding immediate arrest of Akbar. Some activists burnt him in effigy in Saidabad.
