Hyderabad, Jan 22: 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.

Police had made elaborate security arrangements around the court to prevent any untoward incident.

Prohibitory orders banning assembly of five or more people were also imposed in the town.

Owaisi was arrested by the police Jan 8 for making a hate speech at a public meeting at Nirmal on Dec 22. The next day, he was sent to judicial custody.

The police also questioned the legislator for four days.

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

The MIM leader was booked by the police Jan 3 after some citizens moved courts in Hyderabad, seeking action against him for allegedly making derogatory comments about Hindu gods.

The young legislator, who was away in London, returned Jan 7.

He is also facing police cases for making provocative speech at Nizamabad town Dec 8.

Cases were also booked against Owaisi in several police stations in Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and other districts on complaints lodged by individuals.
