The petition filed by MIM legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi seeking bail was rejected by a Court here on Wednesday.

The MLA, along with his brother and party president Asaduddin Owaisi and four other MLAs, have been facing charges of assault on the then Collector A.K. Singhal in 2005.

After hearing arguments from both the sides, Judicial First Class Magistrate court Judge K. Maruthi Devi rejected the petition.
