Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh on Tuesday reiterated his doubts over the validity of the Bhopal prison break and subsequent encounter of 8 SIMI terrorists. 

“NIA must conduct probe, Court should monitor it. Also why only Muslims break out of jail and not Hindus, what is the problem, must also be probed,” Digvijay Singh told media in Bhopal on Tuesday. 

Hitting back at the Congress leader, MP Home Minister Bhupendra Singh said that opposition is elective in their criticism, “Whenever terrorists are killed in an encounter, there are a few people in our country who raise doubts especially Congressmen,” he said.
