Gujarat government today appointed a two member commission to probe sensational telephone tapping and stalking case as Congress continued to mount pressure.
The Commission is headed by Retired judge of Gujarat High Court Sugna Bhatt and Retired IAS K C Kapoor is its member.
The controversy based on audio tapes of conversation between the then Minister of State for Home Amit Shah and IPS officer G L Singhal has been hitting headlines in the national media for the past one week.
In this case an architect woman was shadowed by Gujarat police at the behest of Amit Shah through Singhal. It also gives impression that “Saheb” mentioned in the conversation was none but Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
Modi and Shah both are maintaining a stoic silence over the issue while BJP leaders are dubbing it as yet another case of false propaganda of Congress. They admit that the lady was indeed shadowed, but this was because of her protection as orally demanded by her father and not surveillance claimed by Congress.
The controversy has interesting twist by way of a statement by suspended IAS Pradip Sharma in the Supreme Court in which he has claimed that Modi had ordered all this against the lady and Sharma as Modi suspected that the lady who was close to Modi was passing information to Sharma.
PCC Chief Arjun Modhwadia said that this was an eyewash because both Ms Bhatt and Kapoor were rehabilitated by Modi after retirement and were in his goodbook.
