Indore:

A Congress leader in Indore on Friday lodged a complaint of sedition against BJP MP Pragya Thakur over her remarks on Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse, which has sparked a controversy.

Congress leader Devendra Singh Yadav lodged the complaint at Pandrinath Police Station, in which he said Pragya Thakur's remarks on Godse attract sedition charge.

This comes a day after some Congress workers lodged a similar complaint against Pragya Thakur at Central Kotwali Police Station.

Pandrinath Police Station in-charge Kamlesh Sharma said the complaint against Pragya Thakur would be sent to an appropriate forum for further legal action.

Top police officials said they were looking into the legal aspects of both the complaints against Pragya Thakur.

So far, no case has been registered over the issue.

Mr Thakur triggered controversy on Wednesday with her remark in the Lok Sabha during DMK member A Raja's narration of a statement by Nathuram Godse before a court on why he killed Mahatma Gandhi. Her remark was expunged by the Speaker.

Earlier on Friday, Pragya Thakur apologised in Lok Sabha, but said her remarks have been twisted.
