Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Police have registered a case against Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) GK on a complaint by Jagdish Tytler, the police said today.

The leader, an accused in the 1984 riots case, had filed the complaint at station in south west in February, accusing Singh of circulating a "doctored" video clip.

Based on the complaint, a case was registered a couple of days ago on the directions of a city court.

In a press conference in February, Singh had released a video clip of a purported sting operation recorded in 2011, showing Tytler in conversation with a few people.

He claimed he had received the video from an unidentified sender on February 3.

Singh had demanded Tytler's arrest on the basis of the video clip.

The video clip circulated by Singh is completely "false and doctored", Tytler had said, calling the it an attempt to tarnish his image and reputation.

"In the press conference, the accused (and others) played the video clip and falsely stated that I have confessed to having killed hundreds of Sikhs in the 1954 riots in Delhi," the had said in his police complaint.
