Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, who has been facing flak from the Bharatiya Janata Party for his ISI comments, is now got into defamation cases.

Earlier today In Delhi, a defamation complaint was filed against Digvijaya Singh, the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister by the BJP legal cell for his alleged remark that the ' Bajrang Dal and BJP were taking money from the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)'. The case was registered on Wednesday by Divyendu Mani, son of BJP MLA Rajnikant Mani.

Digvijaya Singh Speaking at a function in Madhya Pradesh in late August, said: "Those who wear saffron also commit rape. Some of these organizations are being funded by the ISI."

The petitioner said that the senior Congress leader has done a blunder causing injury to the BJP, its leaders by giving defamatory statements. He said ‘The language used in the statement is highly unethical, wherein the accused had caused mockery of the whole system. The statement that BJP is taking money from ISI naturally creates wrong impression in the minds of the general public as ISI is a spy agency of Pakistan, which is held to be inimical to India and who has established links to the several terror attacks in India. The comment of the accused has been made in categorical terms to defame the BJP party’.

He hopes court will that it in consideration and added ‘This court may take cognizance of the grave offence committed by the accused person thereby causing injury to the BJP, its leaders and public at large.’
