A local court on Thursday granted bail to MIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi in connection with a 2005 case. He had allegedly obstructed the then Medak district Collector and other officials from discharging their duties.
Asaduddin was earlier sent to judicial remand till February 2 and lodged in the Medak district jail at Kandi, six km from Sangareddy.
Sources said that it is likely he would be released on Thursday after the production of bail orders before the jail authorities. The 5th Additional District Judge court in Sangareddy town allowed Asaduddin's bail plea and directed him to furnish a personal bond for Rs 10,000 and two sureties of the same amount.
The defence had submitted that Asaduddin had to attend a conference in Hyderabad on January 25.
Earlier, the Judicial First Class Magistrate and Prohibition and Excise Court had twice dismissed Asaduddin's bail petitions. The case was registered on a complaint by a revenue official, that Asaduddin, his younger brother and party MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi and others protested demolition of a place of worship at Muttangi village near Patancheru during a road widening work of Hyderabad-Mumbai National Highway. They had allegedly engaged in heated argument with the then Medak District Collector A K Singhal and other officers and the Owaisi brothers had allegedly pushed the Collector.
