New Delhi, Nov 4: The Delhi police has asked Arvind Kejriwal to provide proof on the phone tapping allegations he had made recently. During a recent programme, the Delhi Chief Minister alleged that the phones of judges were being tapped. This charge was immediately rejected by the union government.
In a letter to the Delhi Chief Minister, the Commissioner of police, Alok Verma has sought for proof. He writes in the letter, "During a function to mark the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Delhi High Court, you have reportedly alleged that the phones of judges are being tapped. In fact, there are media reports to indicate that you have heard some judges saying so."
The Commissioner further writes, " as you are aware phone tapping is an extremely serious matter and is not allowed without due authorisation after following strict procedures mandated under the law. There you are alluding to the matter raises serious concerns."
"Under the circumstances, please let us know of any incident or case of phone tapping that you have referred to in the course of your speech. We would also appreciate if you could inform us the source on which you base your allegations so that the appropriate action can be initiated in the matter," the commissioner also writes.
