Posted on Mon , 21 Jan '13
Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen supremo and MP Asaduddin Owaisi has been remanded to judicial custody for 14 days after he surrendered himself before a court in Medak today. Owaisi, against whom a non-bailable warrant was pending is the main accused in a 2005 case of abusing the Medak Collector. The leader has filed a 'recall petition' in the court seeking cancellation of NBW. However, the court dismissed his petition and remanded him in judicial custody till February 2. Asaduddin, along with his brother - jailed Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, were among others booked by the Patancheru police for obstructing the then Medak Collector A K Singhal from discharging his duties, among other charges.
