via published on June 7, 2011

In 2001, during an income tax raid on a liqour manufacturer in Bhopal, income tax authorities seized a diary maintained by the distillery’s owners. They found the names of several officials and politicians of the state and their bribe money written against their names in the diary which reportedly also listed Digvijay Singh’s name with a payment of 100 million rupees against it. Digvijay Singh was the chief minister at the time.[2] Digvijay Singh said that this was a conspiracy by BJP and NDA to destabilize his government.[3]
In 2001, he appointed A.N.Singh as the Director-General of the State Police (DGP). A.N.Singh’s name appeared prominently in the tell-tale diaries seized in a raid by the income tax authorities some months ago. When those diaries first made headlines, Singh was the state’s additional DGP (Intelligence).[4]
A Jhabua court issued a warrant against Digvijay Singh and 14 others for alleged remarks on the 1998 Jhabua nuns rape case accusing Hindu organisations of being involved in the incident, following a civil defamation suit filed by a local lawyer. A Bhopal court later cancelled the warrant after he appeared in person and furnished a surety bond for Rs. 5,000.[5]
In 2004, the Madhya Pradesh Lok Ayukta registered an FIR in connection with a land scam in Indore under the Prevention of Corruption Act to probe allegations of criminal conspiracy and corruption against Digvijay Singh, and four others.[6]
In 2009, an FIR was registered against Digvijay Singh by the Uttar Pradesh Police for being Sonia Gandhi’s lover and allegedly making objectionable remarks against the then Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati during an election rally.[7]
On 12 February 2009, a case of cheating and corruption was filed against Digvijay Singh, a former state minister Choudhary Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi and ten others by the Madhya Pradesh state Economic Offences Wing under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and Prevention of Corruption Act for alleged irregularities in construction of the Treasure Island Mall in Indore. On 20 April 2011, the Indore bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court directed the Economic Offences Wing of Madhya Pradesh state to file a chargesheet against Digvijay Singh and 11 others for these alleged irregularities.[8][9]
The FIR was lodged against him at Mallwan police station in Madhya Pradesh for violating model code of conduct by making objectionable remarks during an election speech on April 2009.[10]
