Telangana high court on Wednesday granted an interim stay on the orders passed by the special sessions court for MLA and MP which sentenced one-year imprisonment of Goshamahal MLA Raja Singh for assault on policemen in 2015.

Raja Singh was convicted for assaulting a police personnel in 2015 when the Osmania University held a Beef Festival. The MLA who called for a protest against the Beef Festival was taken into preventive detention by the police and moved to Bollarum police station where he allegedly attacked the policemen.

The Bollaram police then registered a case against him involving sections 353 (assault or criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging duties) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Challenging the court orders, the MLA approached the high court which issued a stay and adjourned the case hearing to four weeks.
