Indore: A private criminal complaint has been filed in a court here against former IPS officer and Team Anna member Kiran Bedi over her `Dhritarashtra' remark against Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.

Indrajeet Singh Bhatia, a lawyer, filed the complaint with First Class Judicial Magistrate Rekha R Chandravanshi on Tuesday, seeking criminal investigation under Information Technology Act. The court would take up the application on June 22.

"I feel insulted as a citizen that our Prime Minister, who represents crores of Indian voters, has been labelled as Dhritarashtra and his cabinet has been labelled as corrupt," Bhatia said.

Bedi had likened -- on twitter -- the Prime Minister to the blind King Dhritarashtra of Mahabharata for overlooking the corruption around him.
