Mumbai: Senior IPS officer Rashmi Shukla has not been named in the phone tapping case. Therefore, the state government has claimed in an affidavit filed in the high court that Shukla’s plea to quash the case cannot be taken up.
Shukla claimed that the then Additional Chief Secretary Sitaram Kunte had sought permission for phone tapping; But Kunte said in his report that he was misled into allowing phone tapping
The government has also claimed KL. Not only that, but the case is related to the disclosure of sensitive and confidential information by the state intelligence department. The state government has also claimed in the affidavit that the case has nothing to do with the CBI probe against former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
Shukla has moved the High Court seeking quashing of a case filed by the Mumbai Police Cyber Department alleging disclosure of confidential and sensitive information.
What’s in the affidavit? .. A case has been registered against unknown persons for disclosing confidential and sensitive information. It does not include Shukla’s name. Therefore, they cannot demand the repeal of this offense. Shukla was also issued a notice seeking information on the ongoing probe into the case. The information contained in the State Intelligence Department’s computer was taken on a pen drive and copies were then illegally given to a third party. This is a crime under the Information Technology Act. Shukla’s allegation that he was charged with revenge is also baseless.
