The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Saturday served a legal notice to Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh over his controversial remarks about Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare, who was killed in the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai.

Demanding an unconditional apology from him for the 'unsubstantiated remarks', the notice warns him of legal action under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for promoting enmity between communities, deliberately outraging religious feelings, provoking riots and promoting enmity between classes.

Meanwhile, Digvijay Singh on Saturday sought to substantiate his theory of 'Hindu terror'.

Singh accused the Bharatiya Janata Party government in Madhya Pradesh of closing the murder case of RSS activist Sunil Joshi without finding out the fact. Singh alleged that Joshi, who was linked to Ajmer dargah blast of 2007, was murdered by his colleagues as he knew 'too much' about the outfit's activities.

The case was later investigated by the National Investigation Agency and the Rajasthan Anti-Terrorism Squad. Singh claimed all the persons arrested in connection with the murder case had at some point or other worked for the RSS.

"When they (RSS) cannot forgive their own pracharak, then what will they do to others," said Singh, adding "there should be a deeper probe into it".

He alleged that Joshi used to train RSS activists in bomb-making.

"The Madhya Pradesh government refused to find out the facts and decided to close the matter by filing a final report. It should now be probed on whose instruction the case was closed," he said.

"On whose instructions was the final report filed? Which BJP leaders were involved in hushing up this murder case," he said.

"I demand from the central government to probe all this," Singh said, adding the role of the police officers and others responsible for closing the case should be investigated.
