Akbaruddin Owaisi
Hyderabad, Feb 12: Akbaruddin Owaisi has been going through a tough phase as it seems that he has been pushed to the corner. The MIM legislator, who was arrested over his hate speech, has been denied bail once again on Tuesday, Feb 12.

A court in Nirmal in Adilabad district near Hyderbad extended Akbaruddin's judicial custody till Feb 26. Meanwhile, his voice has been recorded in Nizamabad town of Andhra Pradesh. The MIM MLA is facing charges of sedition and waging war against the nation for his alleged hate speech.

On Feb 5, Nirmal town police had got his voice recorded by Andhra Pradesh Forensic Science Laboratory (APFSL) experts in another alleged hate speech case.

Akbaruddin was brought from Adilabad District Jail, where he has been lodged since Jan 9, in connection with another "hate speech" case registered at Nirmal town of Adilabad, and produced before the First Additional District Magistrate (ADM) in Nizamabad town.

Multiple cases have been registered against Akbaruddin for his alleged hate speeches delivered in Nizamabad on December 8 and at Nirmal town of Adilabad on Dec 22, 2012.

Experts from the APFSL conducted voice sample test of Akbaruddin in the court, wherein he was asked to read an Urdu newspaper and some Urdu documents.

The court also extended his judicial remand till Feb 26 in the case.

The recorded voice sample and the footage of the speech in which Akbaruddin allegedly made provocative remarks against a particular community in Nizamabad on December 8 last year will now be sent to CFSL Chandigarh for further verification, a senior police officer told over phone from Nizamabad.

Akbaruddin was arrested by Nirmal police from Gandhi Hospital on Jan 8.

Meanwhile, the counsel of Akbaruddin filed a bail petition in Nizamabad court which is likely to come up for hearing on Feb 14.
