Telangana AAP workers led by Bharti held a demonstration near the Hyderabad police commissioner's office here and demanded immediate registration of FIR against Raja Singh and his arrest.

"A group of 37 AAP activists including Bharti were taken into preventive custody...all of them were subsequently released," Narayanguda police station's inspector S Bheem Reddy told reporters.

Raja Singh, who represents Goshamahal constituency here, in a speech uploaded on his Facebook page supported the attacks on dalits in Una by a vigilante group for allegedly killing a cow.

"I support the beating of Dalits whoever slaughter cows to consume its meat...I also support those who taught them a lesson," Singh said in his two-and-half minute video, uploaded on July 30.
