Another probe ordered against Owaisi over hate speech

January 09, 2013 23:34 IST

Another probe has been ordered against Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi over an alleged hate speech.

A magistrate's court in Warangal on Wednesday directed Kazipet police to investigate and register an FIR against Owaisi, following a complaint by advocate Kotha Ravi of Bapujinagar, Kazipet.

Ravi has alleged that he saw a video of a provocative speech by Owaisi on the internet, which targeted a community.

Owaisi was arrested Tuesday evening in connection with his speech in Adilabad.
