Adilabad, February 16: The release of MIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi from Adilabad District Jail has been delayed following non-completion of procedures.
Over a month after his arrest in the alleged hate speech case, Akbar Owaisi was to be released from Adilabad District Jail here on Saturday. However, due to non-completion of all the formalities, his release was delayed. As per the court orders, Akbar Owaisi has furnished the sureties of Rs 25,000. However, he did not surrender his passport which delayed his release order.
Since all the formalities have been completed, Akbar Owaisi is likely to be released in the next few hours.
