BJP MLA T Raja Singh from Hyderabad was caught on camera attacking a police constable on Friday evening. In the footage, Singh attacked and threatened the constable with dire consequences at a event.

The fiasco happened after the police constable attempted to stop a DJ who was playing loud music without permission late in the night, as reported by CNN-IBN.

An FIR has been registered against the MLA.

Meanwhile, Singh, while defending himself has alleged that the constable was drunk.

The police did not allow the marriage party to run the DJ. It was the constable who was drunk.

Speaking to CNN-IBN, the MLA said, “He started beating up the people in the marriage ceremony. I was just trying to stop the high decibel music being played. I never hit the constable. Whatever is written in the FIR is wrong.”

Reacting on the allegation by MLA, Hyderabad DCP West Zone, A Venkateshwer Rao said, “His allegations are baseless, we have sufficient evidence against him, everything is recorded and on the basis of these evidence we will proceed legally.”
