A lawyer in Karnataka's Shivamogga district filed a complaint against Congress president Sonia Gandhi for tweets sent out against the PM Cares Fund from the official party handle.
The complainant, Praveen, said the tweets falsely represented the fund by calling it 'PM Cares Fraud'.
"The tweets were made from the party's official twitter handle and it also has the picture of Sonia Gandhi, hence, for any communication (sic) that is uploaded or put on this page, she (Sonia Gandhi) is solely responsible.
The FIR has been lodged at the Sagara New Town Police station in the district also native to Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.
In the letter, Shivakumar said the complainant has filed the FIR with a political motive based on false information.
