Hyderabad: City police booked a case against clergy Maulana Ali Quadri, 50, based on a complaint that stated that he had taken money to help a cancer patient but failed to do so. The man has been placed under arrest.

He then contacted Maulana Ali Quadri and meet him at his brother-in-law's house behind Azam Hospital, Hussain Alam.
Maulana Ali Quadri said he will arrange the amount in four days and had asked Rs 4.5 lakhs as commission.
