BJP leader Mukul Roy has moved to the Delhi High Court accusing the Trinamool Congress-led West Bengal government of tapping his phone. Roy had recently quit the TMC and joined the BJP.
The plea sought directions to service providers Vodafone and MTNL to produce before the court directions, if any, issued by West Bengal government to intercept telegraphic messages originating from or received by Roy or any of his relative. Justice Vibhu Bakhru Friday posted the matter for further hearing on November 20.
Meanwhile, PTI reported that Home Minister Rajnath Singh has assured Roy of appropriate action after examining his complaint that the West Bengal government was monitoring his movements.
