After eight months, the government had accepted the matter of phone tapping
Let us tell you that during the revolt of the Sachin Pilot camp last year, there were allegations of phone tapping on the Rajasthan government. In this, the question was also asked in the assembly on behalf of the opposition whether the phones of public representatives were tapped, in response to which the government accepted the matter of phone tapping after eight months. Since then, the government has come under the target of BJP continuously. Therefore, Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat had lodged a complaint in Delhi on this. After Shekhawat’s complaint, the Crime Branch of Delhi Police had registered an FIR on March 25.
Delhi Crime Branch is investigating the matter
Let us inform that in this matter, it was clarified by the government that the phones of any public representative were not tapped. The phone was actually intercepted. During the phone intercept, a third person can also hear the conversation of two people. Also, it was done according to the rules and keeping in mind the security of the state. Here in the FIR of this case, Gajendra Singh accused of tapping the phones of public representatives and maligning their image. Shekhawat accused unknown police officers including Lokesh Sharma, OSD to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in the FIR. Delhi Crime Branch is probing the matter.
Demand to cancel the case and send it to Rajasthan
Let us tell you that in this entire matter, Lokesh Sharma has also challenged the jurisdiction of FIAsar in his petition. It has been argued in the petition that there is already an FIR registered in Rajasthan in the phone tapping case on which investigation is going on, so there is no justification for an FIR outside Rajasthan in the same case. It has also been argued in the petition that even if the FIR is not quashed, then it should be transferred to Rajasthan considering it as zero FIR.
