Hyderabad: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi, undergoing treatment for the past 20 days at a corporate hospital here for bullet and stab injuries sustained during an attack on him, was discharged on Friday.

His elder brother and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi drove him in a car after his discharge from the hospital.

Owaisi, who represents Chandrayangutta Assembly constituency, was attacked by a group of 10 assailants with sharp weapons and firearms near the MIM office at Barkas here on April 30.

The Central Crime Station(CCS) -- a wing of Hyderabad Police probing the incident -- has so far arrested 13 persons including prime suspect Mohammad Pahalwan, who allegedly masterminded the attack on the MIM legislator.

One of the assailants Ibrahim Bin Younus Yafai, who was hit by a bullet when the gunman of another MIM MLA Ahmed Balala accompanying Owaisi opened fire in retaliation, has died.
