In a related development, a court in Hyderabad directed police to investigate a speech made by Owaisi in Nanded in 2012, which allegedly targeted a particular community.

Upon a complaint filed by Hyderabad corporator Raja Singh, the court today asked Mangalghat police here to probe the Nanded speech and file a report by February 11.

Akbaruddin, arrested by Nirmal police on January 8 from Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad in connection with a hate speech case, is at present in judicial custody in Adilabad District jail. The police had sought a seven-day custody.

Owaisi has been booked for alleged hate speeches by the police of Nirmal and Nizambad Two town, and Osmania University police here. Further, the Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court of L B Nagar yesterday took cognisance of another complaint over one of his speeches, and summoned him to the court on February 4.
