Case Booked Against Digvijaya Singh For Controversial Tweets
Hyderabad: An FIR was registered against Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh under 505 of the IPC (statement conducing to public mischief) for his controversial tweets recently. The Congress leader tweeted accusing Telangana Police of running a bogus ISIS website to trap Muslim youth.
The Jubilee Hills police registered the case against him.
The senior leader alleged, “Telangana police has set up a bogus ISIS site which is radicalising Muslim youth and encouraging them to become ISIS modules.”
Digvijaya Singh, a former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, alleged, “Telangana Police has set up a bogus ISIS site which is radicalising Muslim youths and encouraging them to become ISIS modules”.
“The issue is whether Telangana Police should be trapping Muslim youths in becoming ISIS modules by posting inflammatory information,” Digvijaya Singh had tweeted. The Congress leader is currently the in-charge of party affairs in Telangana.
“Is It Ethical? Is it Moral? Has KCR authorised Telangana Police to trap Muslim Youths and encourage them to join ISIS? If he has, then shouldn’t he own the responsibility and resign? If he hasn’t, then shouldn’t he enquire and punish those who are responsible for committing such a heinous crime?” Digvijaya Singh asked.
Meanwhile, Telangana Minister K T Rama Rao hit out at Digvijay Singh for this comments on Telangana Police. “Most irresponsible and reprehensible thing coming from a former CM. Request you to withdraw these comments unconditionally or provide evidence,” tweeted the minister.
Supporting Telangana Police, K T Rama Rao urged the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to condemn Digvijaya’s tweets. The minister said that Telangana police not only lowered the crime rate in the State but also got laurels from the Central government for cooperating with other States in tackling terrorism. Telangana DGP Anurag Sharma too condemned the allegations and tweeted “Unfounded allegations from a senior responsible leader will lower the morale and image of police engaged in fighting anti-national forces.”
