Goshamahal BJP MLA Raja Singh had spent 76 days in jail last year after Telangana police invoked Preventive Detention Act – PDA against him for his repeated offences stoking communal tensions in the city. On Thursday, the police sent a notice to Telangana MLA and suspended BJP leader T Raja Singh over alleged objectionable remarks he made last year against a religious community.

After that the case was transferred from Kanchan Bhag to Mangal Hat Police Station. In this context, the Mangalhat police have issued notices under 41A CRPC.
Meanwhile, Karuna Sagar, the lawyer of BJP MLA Raja Singh, responded to these notices. The lawyer said, “We will respond to the notices given by the police. What about giving notices now for comments made a year ago?” The lawyer Karuna Sagar added, “What have you done for so many days?” Karuna Sagar said that we respect the court and the law.
