Watch: Jaffar Hussain stages dharna after AIMIM leader taken into custody

Hyderabad: Yakutpura MLA Jaffar Hussain Meraj staged a protest after All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Shafath Ali was taken into custody in connection with the case of an attack on a TSSPDCL lineman cum bill collector.

Speaking to the media later, Meraj stated that it all began when the lineman cum bill collector Rajinish Babu allegedly misbehaved with an elderly woman at SRT Colony, Yakutpura on Tuesday.

Upon receiving the information, Shafath Ali reached the spot and raised objections to Rajinish’s behavior, according to the MLA.

The MLA alleged that instead of taking action against the lineman, the police registered a complaint of attacking a government employee against the AIMIM leader. Later, the leader was taken into custody.

Following a dharna staged by AIMIM MLA and others, a case was registered against the lineman as well.
