Plaint against Owaisi over 'aid' to IS suspects

 A police complaint was on Sunday lodged against AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi in Hyderabad over his decision to provide legal help to five arrested terror suspects.

A petition seeking a sedition case against him was filed in a court in Meerut.
As Owaisi came under attack, the BJP and JD(U) demanded action against him and his immediate arrest.

Slamming Owaisi over his decision to provide legal help to five men arrested by NIA in Hyderabad for being members of an ISIS module, the BJP accused him of “betraying” the country and sought action against him for “helping” the terror group.

Telangana BJP MLA T Raja Singh demanded immediate arrest of the Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad and asked the TRS government to register a sedition case against the leader of the Hyderabad-based party. JD(U) spokesperson Ajay Alok also demanded that Owaisi be put behind bars.

Owaisi on his part said the offer of legal help was being “blown out of proportion” and that the courts can take a view.

In Hyderabad, K Karuna Sagar, a practising advocate, filed the complaint with Saroor Nagar police. However, Saroor Nagar Police Station Inspector S Lingaiah said on Sunday, “We have received the complaint against the Hyderabad MP. No case has been registered and we are seeking legal advise.” The hearing on the complaint will be held on July 6, said the court.
