Hyderabad: A chargesheet will be filed by the Rein Bazaar police against BJP legislator Raja Singh following his response to the notices issued to him.
According to the police, a case was registered against the legislator after he made remarks against a “green book” last week. He had demanded that a ban on the “green book” as it was the cause of terrorism in the country.
The police has warned the public that such action would have serious consequences. Stern legal action would be taken against persons who make such comments, irrespective of their status.

Two months ago, during the Ramanavami festivities, the MLA had put up a video in which he accused the TRS government of being ‘anti-Hindu’ for prohibiting the use of loudspeakers. He had then issued provocative statements and challenged the police to stop him from using loudspeakers. Complaints were filed in Charminar and Rein Bazaar police stations. He also has a case against him in Karnataka.
DCP, South, V. Satyanarayana said, “We appeal to all citizens that they should not encourage such things. The law will takes its own course if anybody violates the law or indulges such unsocial activities.”...
