New Delhi: The ongoing controversy over alleged corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) was dealt another twist on Thursday as Tejbir Singh, father Delhi cricketer Himmat Singh filed a defamation suit against Kirti Azad.
According to a report on the India Today website, the defamation case was also filed against former India skipper Bishan Singh Bedi and Surender Khanna.
Azad, on Wednesday, was suspended by the BJP for anti-party activity, which included taking on senior party leader and Union Finance minister Arun Jaitley in the DDCA scam.
Senior BJP leaders LK Advani, MM Joshi and Yashwant Sinha are believed to have voiced their support for the suspended MP.
The former cricketer has requested PM Narendra Modi to step in to the matter.
