Singh on Tuesday moved the Allahabad High Court bench here seeking a stay on his possible arrest and challenging the FIR lodged against him by BSP leaders for using “derogatory” language against BSP supremo Mayawati.

An FIR was lodged against Singh on July 20 at Hazratganj police station here under the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act for passing “derogatory” comments against Mayawati.

The complaint, which was lodged by national secretary of BSP Mewalal Gautam, alleged that Singh’s remarks had hurt the feelings of BSP workers and the Dalit community across the country and were aimed at provoking them.
