Jabalpur: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Thursday accused the BJP of maintaining double standards as far as the CBI was concerned.

"When the CBI acts against a Congress leader, the BJP is happy but when the agency acts in the Ishrat Jahan case, it starts talking of independent inquiries and politicization of the CBI," Digvijay said.

The CBI had on Wednesday chargesheeted seven Gujarat police officers in the 2004 case where Ishrat Jahan and three others were killed. The CBI chargesheet had also termed the encounter as "fake".

Digvijay said that several fake counters were held in Gujarat, including that of Ishrat Jahan, Sadiq Jamal and five others.
