Indore: A case has been registered by Madhya
Pradesh Police against senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh
and seven other party leaders for blocking Indore-Betul
national highway and Indore-Kampel Road and causing
inconvenience to the people.
The case was registered on a complaint filed by a local
resident against the Congress leaders who have been booked
under IPC Sections 341 (wrongful restraint) and 143
