Hyderabad: The Hyderabad police arrested an NRI who was threatening Goshamahal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA, T Raja Singh over the phone.

Mohd Waseem, a resident of Dubai, UAE, regularly made phone calls to Raja Singh. The MLA submitted a complaint to the cybercrime police station in Hyderabad (CCS) and a case was registered.

The accused belonged to Barkas in Old City. During the investigation, the police traced the origin of calls, made to Raja Singh, to the phones and IP address of Mohd Waseem.

The police issued a lookout circular for him and all airports were alerted. When Mohd Waseem arrived from Dubai at Shamshabad airport in Hyderabad, the Cybercrime police arrested him.

The BJP MLA had previously complained about threatening phone calls from foreign locations. The police had arrested a man from Saidabad earlier for making threatening phone calls to the MLA and remanded him.
