Indore: A Congress leader filed a complaint with the Cyber Crime Prevention Squad here today about former prime minister late Rajiv Gandhi's name going viral on social media alleging that it has been included among the list of people who have stashed black money in foreign banks.

"We want the police to identify those who have spread such fake messages on social media and register a criminal case against them because the image of our departed leader and party is being tarnished," the Madhya Pradesh Congress IT and Social Media Cell In-charge Dharmendra Vajpayee told PTI today.

The Centre placed a list of names of Indians having accounts in foreign banks before the Supreme Court today.

He alleged that unidentified people who are part of a conspiracy were spreading such messages on the social media stating that the list includes names of top Congress leaders who stashed away black money in foreign banks.

Meanwhile, Cyber Crime Prevention Squad In-charge Sunita Katara said that the Vajpayee's complaint is being probed and information regarding the same has been sent to the Bhopal-based Cyber Cell Headquarters.
