New Delhi :  

The Telangana Police on Thursday registered a case against Digvijaya Singh for comment on state police for radicalising Muslim youth by setting up fake ISIS website. 

On Monday, Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had charged Telanagana police for establishing a bogus website which is radicalising Muslim youths and encouraging them to ISIS modules.

The leader took to social media and alleged in series of his tweets that the arrest was made by Madhya Pradesh police in Shajapur train bomb blast was on their information. He had further said that Saifullah’s encounter was also taken place on the same day.

Digvijaya had questioned the intention of Telangana police, saying is it ethical for Telangana police to post inflammatory information and to tarp Muslim youth becoming ISIS modules.

He had questioned Chief minister K Chandrashekhara Rao and had said,”Has he authorized Telangana police to trap Muslim Youths and encourage them to join ISIS?”
