Mukul’s Phone Tapping: HC Asks Centre, WB Govt To File Reply


New Delhi: Delhi High Court on Monday issued a notice to the Union Telecom ministry, West Bengal govt and Vodafone asking them to file reply by 7th December on whether Mukul Roy is being monitored or his calls are being intercepted.

Roy has accused Trinamool Congress (TMC) in this regard. On November 17, Roy alleged that his phones are being tapped and moved the Delhi High Court demanding an investigation into the matter.

Reportedly, Union Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Babul Supriyo, had also recently alleged that mobile phones of few political leaders were being tapped in West Bengal.

A former confidante of Mamata Banerjee, Roy joined the BJP on November 3. Roy had accused the West Bengal Chief Minister of indulging in ‘minority politics’ in the state.
