A defamation complaint was Monday lodged in a court in Jharkhand’s capital Ranchi against Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi for equating the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).

Asish Kumar Singh, a resident of Ranchi, lodged the complaint in a chief judicial magistrate (CJM) court.

Gandhi early this month in Bhopal had reportedly compared the RSS with the banned SIMI. The complainant has sought action against the Congress general secretary for passing such remarks.

The complaint has been lodged under penal provisions related to defamation and promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion.
