The UK-based BBC has released a documentary questioning Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership during the 2002 Gujarat riots.
The documentary focused on Modi's leadership as governor of the western state of Gujarat during the 2002 riots in which at least 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed.
India released the documentary "India: The Modi Question" documentary released in January, calling it a biased "propaganda piece" and blocking any part of it from being shared on social media.
Relations between India and the UK soured after the documentary aired.
India's Delhi High Court has summoned the BBC in a defamation case related to its documentary on Prime Minister Modi.
According to Reuters, the case was filed on the grounds that the documentary "deliberately defames India".
A BBC spokesperson said, "We are aware of the court proceedings. It would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage."
The BBC has previously stated that it stands by its coverage of the documentary, which was not broadcast in India.
