A court in Telangana's Sangareddy district acquitted AMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, his brother and MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi and others in connection with a 2005 case against them for allegedly obstructing the then district collector and other officials from discharging their duties in Telangana's Medak district.

Asaduddin, the MP from Hyderabad, four party MLAs -including Akbaruddin - and others, were booked under sections 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion), 147 (rioting), 186 (obstructing public servant while discharging duties) and seven other sections of the IPC.

Judicial magistrate N Venkatram dropped all charges against Owaisi brothers, the party MLAs and 24 others.

The case was registered on a complaint by a revenue official that the accused protested against demolition of a place of worship at Muttangi village near Patancheru during the widening of Hyderabad-Mumbai National Highway in 2005. They had allegedly engaged in heated arguments with the then Medak district collector AK Singhal, who was also pushed around.
