Patna: Controversial AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi on Sunday described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a "zalim (tyrant)" and "shaitan (devil)" for his alleged involvement in 2002 Gujarat riots.

"Modi is a zalim and shaitan and responsible for 2002 Gujarat riots," he said at an election meeting in Bihar's Kishanganj district.

"There is a section, including me, who consider no one other than Modi responsible for Gujarat riots of 2002," said Owaisi, a legislator in Telangana and the younger brother of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi.
