Bangalore: In fresh legal trouble for MIM legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi, a court here has directed him to appear before it on February 23 in connection with a criminal case filed against him for alleged hate speech.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Rajashekar V Patil issued the summons yesterday on two similar complaints lodged by advocates Dilip Kumar and Dharmapal praying for prosecuting Owaisi for his hate speech in Andhra Pradesh in 2012.
