The news was confirmed by V. Satyanarayana, an official from Hyderabad Police.
He told media, "Criminal case filed against Asaduddin Owaisi and others on the complaint of Congress leader Shabbir Ali.
The incident occurred when a clash erupted at Mir Chowk police station between Congress leaders and Owaisi workers after the release of a Congress candidate on bail.
