Sangeet Verma, who is also an RSS volunteer, filed the complaint with the Shahpura police station in Bhopal on Saturday.

Verma has alleged that through his tweet, the Congress general secretary had made a deliberate attempt to hurt the sentiments of Hindus, who have deep faith in Lord Ram.

Singh's tweet had mentioned about "Ram and Raghavji" and it was written a few days after the former State finance minister was arrested following allegation of sexual assault levelled by his servant.

Police said they have received the complaint and it will be followed by an inquiry although a formal FIR is yet to be lodged.

The Congress leader had later claimed that his tweet has been misinterpreted.
