The police in their bid to diffuse the tension, arisen due to the proposed beef festival, arrested Goshamahal MLA Raja Singh in the early hours of Thursday. The Mangalhat police detained Mr. Singh at the Shahinazgunz police station. Mr. Singh while condemning the high handedness of the police, threatened to protest in case beef festival was held at the campus of Usmania University.
Meanwhile the police have taken tight security measures to prevent any untoward incidents as the students of OU threatened to conduct the beef festival inspite of the prohibitive orders of the High Court. The police have put on the barricades and are allowing students and the teaching staff into the campus only on id cards.
