Owaisi brothers acquitted in mosque demolition case

Owaisi brothers acquitted in mosque demolition case

Hyderabad: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and four legislators of his party, who included his brother too, got relief when a court in Telangana on Thursday acquitted them in a case related to demolition of a mosque 11 years ago.

A court in Sangareddy town, some 65 km from here, acquitted the Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad and four state legislators of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).

Asaduddin Owaisi, his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi, Ahmed Pasha Khadri, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan and Muazzam Khan were booked by the police on March 16, 2005, for obstructing officials from demolishing a mosque to facilitate road extension at Muttangi village.

Asaduddin Owaisi had surrendered before court on January 21, 2013, and was sent to jail after the court dismissed his petition for cancellation of the non-bailable warrant pending against him.

The AIMIM chief was later granted bail in the case.

Meanwhile, reacting to Thursday's court order, Asaduddin asked if the Congress party, which was in power in the then undivided Andhra Pradesh, would apologise for booking the false case.

He tweeted that the mosque was demolished without following due process of law.
