Hate speech: Owaisi's custody extended

Hyderabad: MIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi was granted bail Friday by a court in Nizamabad district of Andhra Pradesh in a hate speech case.

The court approved bail for Owaisi on health grounds on a bond of Rs.10,000 and two sureties, Owaisi's lawyer said.

The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) legislator is lodged in a jail in Adilabad, 300 km from here

However, Owaisi will have to wait for bail in another case of hate speech in a court in Nirmal town of Adilabad district.

Owaisi is in jail since his arrest Jan 8 for making a controversial speech at Nirmal Dec 22. He was also booked for making a similar speech at Nizamabad Dec 8.

In both courts, his voice was recorded and sent for forensic examination as he had claimed that the voice in footage was not his.

A member of the assembly from Chandrayangutta in Hyderabad, Owaisi is facing charges of sedition, waging war against the nation and promoting enmity between people.
