Muzaffarpur (Bihar), Sep 3: A complaint was lodged before a court here on Tuesday against senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh over his alleged remark that more non-Muslims were spying for the ISI (Pakistani intelligence agency) than Muslims.

Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed his petition before the court of Surya Kant Tripathi, Chief Judicial Magistrate of Muzaffarpur, saying "I am a Hindu myself and Singh's statement has hurt my sentiments".

    Digvijaya Singh alleges BJP and Bajrang Dal taking money from Pakistans ISI

    The court will take up the matter for hearing on September 13. Singh, a former national general secretary of the Congress, had allegedly said at Bhind in Madhya Pradesh last week "non-Muslims are spying for the ISI more than Muslims".

    Media reports suggested that he had also named the BJP and the Bajrang Dal-- a Sangh Parivar outfit-- as the organisations he suspected of being funded by the Pakistani agency. Coming under severe attack from the saffron party, Singh later claimed that his statement was being shown in the media in a distorted manner.
