Majlis legislator, Akbaruddin Owaisi, was admitted to the Apollo Hospital in Jubilee Hills here on Tuesday afternoon following complaint of acute pain in his stomach. Doctors carried out a series of tests and kept him under observation for 48 hours.

Mr. Akbaruddin had gone to Nizamabad in the morning to attend a court case in connection with his alleged hate speech. The weak looking Majlis leader was taken to the court in a wheel chair. On his way back to Hyderabad he experienced severe pain and was shifted into the ambulance accompanying him.

His personal physician, Dr. Mazharuddin Ali Khan, who was with Mr. Akbaruddin alerted the Apollo Hospital and soon after reaching the city he was rushed there. Mr. Akbaruddin vomited due to severe abdominal pain. “The pain is due to sub acute intestinal obstruction aggravated by the long travel”, Dr. Khan said.

Doctors did an ultra sound, CT scan and carried out blood tests of Mr. Akbaruddin who is kept in the ICCU unit. “His condition is stable though there is severe pain”, Dr. Khan said.
