Hyderabad: Goshamahal MLA T. Raja Singh lodged a complaint with Telangana DGP over calls and messages he has been receiving on WhatsApp threatening to kill him.

"It is very unfortunate that a sitting MLA receives a threat call from Pakistan but @hydcitypolice doesn’t act or book even an FIR. If I tweet Jai Sri Ram or raise my voice in support of our Hindu brothers police act immediately & book cases. @CPHydCity what is stopping you to act," Raja Singh tweeted. Police started an enquiry on the complaint. (sic)

"I am constantly receiving threatening messages and calls on WhatsApp from various unknown numbers. Earlier too I had received such threats but no action was taken," his complaint said.

He said that this time the threats are of serious nature as the callers have told him about his family members and their routine. The callers also threatened to plant a bomb that would be operated by mobile phone, he added.

"These callers specifically stated over the phone that their sleeper cell network is very active in Hyderabad, Telangana. They are very confident that in the coming days, they will for sure kill me and my family members. It is not out of place to mention that most of the calls are from Pakistan and other Muslim countries," Raja Singh said in his complaint.

Raja Singh also said that in view of such threats, he requested a weapon license for self-protection but it was denied on grounds of criminal cases," the complaint added.
