Indresh has called the questioning a “conspiracy" by the Congress."I have been called here under a fabricated story. I have been living a transparent life ever since my birth and association with RSS. I have devoted my entire life to the nation," he told media persons gathered outside the CBI office.
"To label Hindus and saffron as terrorist and to enquire about it is entirely wrong and a matter of embarrassment for the whole Hindu community living here and abroad," the RSS leader said.
