LONDON: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain has been granted bail till the month of September in the incitement speech inquiry pending further inquiries, a private TV channel reported on Sunday. The Metropolitan Police said the MQM leader appeared at a police station on the scheduled date of return to answer his bail and was asked to return at a date in the middle of September. The police said the investigation into the alleged incitement speeches continues, adding that Altaf Hussain is being investigated on suspicion of intentionally encouraging or assisting offences contrary to Section 44 of the Serious Crime Act 2007.


In a statement, the police said Altaf Hussain had been arrested in relation to the hate speech of 2016 in which he had urged his followers to take the law into their own hands during a speech made from London to Karachi.

Altaf Hussain was arrested by the Scotland Yard in an early morning raid on June 11. He was taken to a south London police station and kept there for under 36 hours.
