Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday passed remarks on the Banjara Hills pub drug bust case that not a single rich person was arrested apart from the owner of the pub.

“Rule of law is supreme Art 13 & it is very unfortunate that cocaine was found in this “Rave party” and all offspring’s of Rich kids were released not a single arrest apart from the owner of the place Law should be applied equally to poor & rich,” he said tagging the Twitter handles of Hyderabad City Police and MA&UD minister KT Rama Rao.

The tweet by Owaisi is in an apparent reference to police taking into custody Ghouseuddin Mohammed, MIM corporator from Bholakpur division in Greater Hyderabad, for threatening and using objectionable language against the police. He has been remanded to 14-day judicial custody.
