A senior police official had said the BJP MLA’s interview was provocative which could promote enmity among the public and lead to the disturbance of peace and communal harmony.
Last month, Raja Singh had sparked a row, saying that he would behead the ones opposing the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
“Some people are saying that they will create ruckus if Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya. I welcome the ones who are warning of dire consequences. We have been waiting for years to behead such traitors,” the MLA had said while addressing a public gathering.
