Hyderabad: A BJP member of the dissolved Telangana Assembly has alleged that his Facebook account has been hacked by unidentified persons.

T Raja Singh Lodh, who represented Goshamahal constituency in the city, met  Additional DCP Cyber Crime Raghu Vir on Monday and filed a complaint stating that he was unable to access his Facebook page.

According to Singh, his Facebook page official has over 5.35 lakh followers and he suspects that it may have been hacked from outside India. He claimed that the account can be misused if action on those culprits is not taken immediately.

"I am shocked (over the incident). I have informed the police about my Facebook account being hacked. If any wrong message is posted on my page, I will not be responsible," the BJP legislator, known for his controversial remarks, said in a video message.

Singh said that he received an email stating that he is removed as the Admin from the FB page. He also claimed previously that there were several unsuccessful attempts to hack his Facebook account, his website and Twitter account.

Singh alleged that his account could have been hacked by political parties with vested interests considering it is election time in the state. 

A case has been registered under relevant sections of IT Act and a probe has been launched, police said.
