Hyderabad: Bengaluru city police on Thursday served a notice on AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi prohibiting his entry into the Police Commissionerate limits of the city for seven days from February 19 to 25. It may be recalled that the AIMIM had rescheduled its public meeting at Chota Maidan at Shivajinagar in Bengaluru on February 21, which was to be addressed by Owaisi and other AIMIM leaders.

Earlier, the Bengaluru police had granted permission for the public meeting on February 8. However, the permission was later withdrawn. Responding to the notice, Asaduddin said he would challenge the notice from Bengaluru police in the court of law, since it sought to interfere with the Right of Freedom of Expression under Article 25 of the Constitution.

He said the contents of the notice served on him were completely biased and based on “untruthfulness.” “The notice has pained me as an Indian who can speak in Parliament but not in Bengaluru city,” he added. The MIM leader asked the Bengaluru Police Commissioner to go through the judgements of the Supreme Court that Freedom of Expression is a fundamental right.
