An Andhra Pradesh court on Tuesday dismissed the bail petition of MIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi in a seven-year-old case.

A local court in Sangareddy town in Medak district near Hyderabad dismissed the bail plea of the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) president, who was on Monday sent to judicial custody till Feb 2.

Owaisi had on Monday appeared before the court, seeking recall of a non-bailable warrant pending against him in connection with a case booked against him in 2005.

The court, however, dismissed his plea and sent him to judicial custody for two weeks. The MP was later shifted to a jail in Sangareddy.

Asaduddin Owaisi and other MIM leaders were booked by the police when they tried to prevent the officials from demolishing a place of worship for road expansion at Mutangi village in the same district.
