Hyderabad, Feb. 3 (ANI): A criminal case has been filed against All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, after his party workers allegedly thrashed Congress workers in Hyderabad yesterday.
V. Satyanarayana, an official from Hyderabad Police, confirmed this to ANI.
“Criminal case filed against Asaduddin Owaisi and others on the complaint of Congress leader Shabbir Ali,” he said.
Owaisi had yesterday refuted the allegations and instead blamed Congress for fuelling the confrontation.
The incident occurred when the Congress leaders were about to leave the Mir Chowk police station after the release of a Congress candidate on bail.
Several AIMIM workers led by Owaisi arrived at the police station and a heated argument led to the incident.
Several Congress leaders, including Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief Uttam Kumar Reddy and Shabbir Ali, sustained minor injuries in the scuffle. (ANI)
