Hyderabad: AIMIM leader and Chandrayangutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, who was ailing since a long time due to knife attack, was shifted to London for emergency treatment. His health had suddenly deteriorated and he was shifted to London on an emergency basis. His elder brother Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi disclosed this during a party meeting held on Sunday.
In December 2018, Akbaruddin was admitted to the Owaisi Hospital and Research Centre after he complained of severe stomach ache. Doctors pointed out that he had not been keeping well since the attack on his life in 2011 in Barkas, when he was shot in the stomach and sustained several knife injuries.
In a report published in an English daily earlier, Akbaruddin Owaisi had said it was becoming difficult for him to contest elections as his health was in a delicate state. And this could also prevent him from contesting elections in the future. (NSS)
