Government doctors to examine AP MLA booked for hate speech

Hyderabad, Jan 7 (PTI) Andhra Pradesh MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, facing multiple cases for alleged hate speech, will be subjected to medical examination by government doctors tomorrow as he failed to appear before the police for questioning today citing ill health. The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) legislator, booked at three police stations in Andhra Pradesh, arrived here from London early today and filed an application before Nirmal police in Adilabad district through his counsel, seeking four days' time to appear before them on health grounds. Owaisi looked fit to face questioning, IG (Warangal Range) A B Vekateshwar Rao told reporters tonight, quoting Investigating Officer of Nirmal (Rural) police station A Raghu who visited Owaisi's residence here. However, Owaisi complained of "internal pain" and hence the IO will subject him to medical examination by government doctors tomorrow, he said. Depending on the availability of doctors and the situation, the examination will be conducted at a hospital or any other place, including his residence, Rao said. After the MLA sought time to appear before the police citing health grounds, the IO visited the lawmaker's residence in Banjara Hills area here this evening to enquire about his medical condition, the IG said.
