Watch on the phone-tapping story!

Recall that Mulayam had alleged that the GoI was tapping his and other Samajwadi Party (SP) leaders' phonelines! The GoI had dismissed the tapping orders as forgeries.

Now, the GoI has apprehended and started interrogating the owner of a detective agency in Delhi in connection with this case. I will try to follow this story as it unwinds the next few weeks.

The Special Cell of the Delhi police is interrogating the owner of a South Delhi-based detective agency, who was arrested on Saturday, to track down the person at whose instance he had allegedly been tapping the phones of some Samajwadi Party leaders using forged documents.

It is learnt that the accused, Bhupender Singh, had been running Metro Intelligence Agency at South Extension for the past one year. The police arrested him from his office on Saturday after technical investigations revealed that he allegedly forged documents in the name of Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police (Crime Branch) Ranjit Narain and Delhi Principal Secretary (Home) R. Narayanswami to illegally tap the phones of certain Samajwadi Party leaders.
