Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday surrendered before court in connection with the 2005 protest case. Later on, he applied for a bail.
Owaisi, along with his brother Akbaruddin and other MIM MLAs, had in 2005 obstructed a road widening project in the Medak district and threatened the then district collector with dire consequences after the police said that a place of worship had to be removed from the way.
The police booked the Owaisi brothers under Sections 147 (punishment for rioting) 153 A (promoting enmity between groups), 353 (assault on public servant obstruc-ting him of discharging duties), 290 (punishment for public nuisance), 295 (deliberate acts to outrage religious feelings) and 506 (criminal intimidation) among others.
They had surrendered once before in 2009 and got out on bail.
