MIM leader and Chandrayanagutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, who has been ailing since a long time due to a knife attack, has been shifted to London for emergency treatment.
His health had suddenly deteriorated, necessitating the emergency shifting.
His elder brother and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi disclosed this during a party meeting held on Sunday.
In December 2018, Akbaruddin Owaisi was admitted to the Owaisi Hospital and Research Centre after he complained of severe stomach-ache. 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 any more as his health was in a delicate state.
