Raja Singh -- the controversial Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Telangana -- courted further controversy after alleging that six-time Grand Slam winner Sania Mirza was present at the time a calf was shot dead in the Dammagudem reserve forest five days ago.

Singh demanded that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao file a murder case against those who killed the 'holy cow'; and conduct an inquiry into Sania's role in the incident.

Sania released a statement on Thursday saying, 'There is fake and malicious news being circulated in some sections of the media by vested interests that a cow was shot dead at Parigi in Vikharabad District on a farm house which is mischievously alleged to be belonging to me.'

'I really didn't plan to respond to this false crazy story but just to put an end to this I would like to issue the following clarifications.'

'I DO NOT OWN any farm house in Parigi. I DO NOT HAVE any person by the name that has been mentioned in the media in my employment. And lastly I have been OUT OF THE COUNTRY since beginning September,' Sania asserted.

'I hope this statement puts this story to rest and in the future I will not be subjected to such baseless ridiculous stories.'
