The Special Court for MP/MLA cases in Gwalior has quashed a subordinate court’s January 2020 order that dismissed a plea by an RSS worker for initiating proceedings against Singh for making “defamatory” statements against the BJP and the Bajrang Dal.

The entire matter pertains to Singh’s reported statements in Bhind district on August 31, 2019, in which he reportedly accused the members of BJP and Bajrang Dal of taking money from ISI and spying in India. He had reportedly said that more non-Muslims have been caught spying for the ISI in India.Senior advocate Avdhesh Singh Bhadoriya, who is also an RSS worker, had filed the plea.
