A court in Kurla on Wednesday issued fresh summons against All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA from Hyderabad Akbaruddin Owaisi in connection with an alleged hate speech case dating to 2012.

The metropolitan magistrate court has asked the MIM leader to be present before it next month. Earlier, a summon was issued in May. But, as there was no report from Hyderabad police confirming service of the summons, a fresh one has been issued, said advocate Gulam Hussain Khan who had filed the complaint last year.
