Hyderabad, Feb. 8 (ANI): All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi was on Monday granted bail in a case of an alleged attack on Congress workers by the AIMIM workers during the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections.
Earlier today, he had surrendered before Hyderabad Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Zone) V. Satyanarayana over the alleged attack.
Owaisi has refuted all allegations, and instead, blamed the Congress for fuelling the confrontation.
The incident occurred when 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)
