Cautioning the Centre and various state governments to monitor AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi's activities, the Congress on 4 July alleged that Owaisi could go to any limit to gain votes for his party.

"Owaisi has been part of that divide and gain vote. I think he must be put under surveillance because his activities are something which needs to be closely observed," Congress leader Tom Vaddakan told ANI.

"I think Owaisi should be under scanner by the Central Government, the state governments, wherever he travels and find out what is he up to," he added.

On 4 July, K Karuna Sagar, a practicing advocate, lodged a complaint with the Hyderabad Police against Owaisi over his statement that he would provide legal help to the terror suspects arrested by the NIA.

In the complaint filed under the subject 'complaint against Hyderabad MP Assaduddin Owaisi for his inflammatory remarks boosting the morale of anti-nationals', it is said, "the stand of Owaisi is giving oxygen to terrorist and that he is seen as standing with extremists."

"Owasis is directly or indirectly helping the ISIS which had come up with a video in which it threatened to target India. This is betrayal of the country," the complaint added.

On 1 July, Owaisi said that his party would provide legal help to the youth arrested by the NIA on charges of involvement in an alleged Islamic State terror module.
