A petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court challenging the election of AIMIM's Imtiaz Jaleel to the Lok Sabha from Aurangabad.

Shaikh Nadeem Shaikh Karim, who unsuccessfully contested from the seat on a Bahujan Maha Party has filed the petition. He sought cancellation of Jaleel's election on the ground that AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had delivered hate speeches during the campaign.  

In the petition, Karim submitted trans and CDs of Owaisi's speeches in which the he was allegedly seeking votes in the name of Muslims and Dalits. Karim's lawyer claimed it was illegal to seek votes in the name of religion.

The petition further claimed there were also discrepancies in the affidavit filed by Jaleel to the Election Commission of India.

The lawyer added that the petition will be placed before an appropriate bench in due course.
