The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government in Telangana was pulled up by the Hyderabad High Court over the delay in prosecuting Akbaruddin Owaisi.

The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader is under the scanner for his alleged hate speech in 2012 and the court has given a week's time to the government and police to take action.

Owaisi is an MLA from Chandrayangutta constituency and is the younger brother of AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi.

According to a Khaleej Times report, Syed Taraq Qadri had filed a petition regarding police inaction in the case.

On 22 December 2012, Owaisi, had allegedly made derogatory remarks against a community while addressing a rally in Adilabad district's Nirmal town.



An FIR was registered against him, after which he was arrested on 8 January 2013 and sent to judicial custody. However, he was later released on bail.
