Earlier today, Police arrested MLA Singh for the aforementioned reason. An FIR was lodged against him at the Dabeerpura Police Station under sections 153a, 295, and 505 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The arrest comes following protests in Hyderabad on Monday demanding action against him for a video that was released by him where he is heard making blasphemous remarks against Prophet Muhammad.

Moreover, last week, Singh, the MLA from Goshamahal in the city, tried to disrupt a comedy show. He was taken into preventive custody by the police on Friday when he tried to reach the venue of stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui's show along with around 50 supporters to get it canceled.
