Hyderabad, June 24: A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Adilabad, Soyam Bapu sparked a controversy after he said that he will behead Muslim youths who are allegedly harassing Adivasi women in the tribal district in Telangana.
Following his statement, Minority leader complained to the police for Soyam Bapu's objectionable remark.
According to India Today report, Congress Minority leader Saajid Khan has lodged a complaint with Adilabad Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Kancha Mohan.
