Akbar Owaisi's judicial custody extended

Hyderabad, Jan 22, 2013 (IANS):

An Andhra Pradesh court Tuesday extended MIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi's judicial custody till Feb 5 in a hate speech case.

As the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) legislator's 14-day custody was ending Tuesday, the police produced him in the munsif magistrate's court in Nirmal, about 200 km from here.

The court extended his judicial remand by another two weeks.

The MIM leader was later shifted back to district jail in Adilabad town, about 90 km from Nirmal.

Owaisi was arrested by the police Jan 8 for making a hate speech at a public meeting at Nirmal last month. The next day, he was sent to judicial custody.

A member of assembly from Chandrayangutta constituency in Hyderabad, Owaisi is facing charges of sedition, waging war against nation and criminal conspiracy.
