Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) corporator Mohammed Murtuza Ali and his followers blocked police officers from performing their duties in the wake of coronavirus lockdown in Chavani area under Madannapet Police Station limits in Hyderabad. The video shows the local party leader warning a cop not to patrol around any mosques without his permission. However, he demanded the cops attend to their duties near temples (mandir) without fail but not near mosques.  A video has gone viral across social media platforms.

Meanwhile, the corporator has alleged the policemen were standing near the mosque and asking the management to lock the premises. “I asked them to show the permission letter for putting a lock on the mosque. The constables were threatening the people in the area,” he alleged. Hyderabad Police have registered a case against the corporator after he was caught threatening and obstructing the two constables from doing their duty near a mosque at Chawni Nade Ali Baig in Hyderabad on Thursday.
