Hyderabad: Raja Singh’s lawyer allegedly attacked at high court
The lawyer had earlier filed a complaint with the Saidabad police after he allegedly received threatening calls from unknown numbers. Sagar claimed that the threats came a day after he represented the now suspended BJP MLA, T Raja Singh, for his derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad, at the Nampally court.
Two days ago Karuna Sagar along with the members of the Telangana High Court Advocates Bar Association sought security after he was attacked on the premises of the high court, a day after Singh’s arrest. The council met the Telangana high court chief justice, Ujjal Bhuyan and submitted the petition to him, seeking security for Sagar.
