Asaduddin, who was yesterday sent to judicial remand till February 2 in the case by the Judicial First Class Magistrate and Prohibition and Excise Special Court in Sangareddy town, had filed a bail application.

After hearing the arguments and counter-arguments from the defence and prosecution, the court in Sangareddy town of Medak district dismissed Asaduddin's bail plea, a senior police officer said.

Asaduddin had yesterday filed a 'recall petition' in the court seeking cancellation of a non-bailable warrant. However, the court had dismissed his petition and remanded him in judicial custody till February 2.

The case was registered on a complaint by a revenue official that Asaduddin, his younger brother and party MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi and others protested demolition of a place of worship at Muttangi village near Patancheru during a road widening work of Hyderabad-Mumbai National Highway.

They had allegedly engaged in heated arguments with the then District Collector A K Singhal and other officers and while demonstrating the Owaisi brothers had allegedly pushed the Collector.
