Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) leader and MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi on Tuesday underwent medical tests at a government hospital here as the police wanted to determine whether he was well enough to be quizzed in connection to hate speech cases filed against him.
Amid tight security, a police team took him to Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad from his residence, where he underwent medical tests.
According to reports, a team of doctors, including a cardiologist, orthopedician and general surgeon, examined Owaisi.
Owaisi´s personal doctors, present at the hospital, were not allowed to enter the examination room, reports said.
Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday slammed the Andhra Pradesh government for not taking instant action against the MIM leader.
Speaking to media, BJP spokesperson Balbir Punj said: "Somewhere, the Andhra Pradesh Government and the Owaisi clan, they are mixed up. It is a fixed match."
"Owaisi has made a highly criminal and an anti-national speech. Any serious government would arrest right at the time he stepped out of aircraft and would not have allowed the crowd there," he said.
