Hyderabad: A court here on Thursday sentenced four accused to 10 years imprisonment for the 2011 attack on AIMIM legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi.

The Seventh Additional Metropolitan Sessions Court, however, acquitted 10 others including prime accused Mohammed Bin Omar Yafai alias Mohammed Pahelwan.

Four -- Mohammed Bin Saleh Wahlan, Abdullah Bin Yonus Yafai, Awad Bin Yonus Yafai, Hasan Bin Omer Yafai -- of the 14 accused were convicted and sentenced by the court, which pronounced the judgement amid tight security at the Nampally Court Complex.

The convicts and other accused already have spent six years in jail. The accused were brought to the court from Chanchalguda jail.

Owaisi was critically injured in the attack by Mohammed Pahelwan and his family members in his Chandrayangutta assembly constituency in the Old City of Hyderabad on April 30, 2011.

One of the attackers, Ibrahim Bin Yonus Yafai, was killed when Akbaruddin's guard opened fire to save him.

Akbaruddin Owaisi, younger brother of AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, is the floor leader of the party in the Telangana assembly.
