Darbhanga district Congress leader Ramnarain Jha filed a complaint against Choubey in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate G K Shrivastava for 'filthy' comments against the AICC president and vice-president.

Addressing a BJP workers' meeting at Rajauli in Nawada district on Thursday night, Choubey had described Sonia as the demonic mythical character 'Putana' and referred to Rahul as a parrot. Jha said he was hurt after seeing insulting comments on Sonia and Rahul in the print media and TV channels.

His lawyer Pawan Chaudhary stated they have urged the court to direct registration of case against Choubey under IPC sections 153-B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration), 500 (punishment for defamation) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace).

He said the CJM has admitted the complaint and transferred the matter to First Class Judicial Magistrate court which will hear it on June 30. A large number of Youth Congress workers held a dharna outside a hotel in Buxar where Choubey is staying.

Led by Buxar Youth Congress president Satyendra Ojha protesters have been sitting on dharna outside the hotel and raising slogans against Choubey and BJP since morning, a Buxar report stated.
