mumbai police: Phone-tapping case: Mumbai police summon CBI director Subodh Jaiswal | India News

NEW DELHI: The Mumbai police on Saturday summoned CBI chief Subodh Kumar Jaiswal in connection with the leak of the Maharashtra Intelligence Department’s data on police transfers and postings.
“CBI director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal has been summoned by Cyber Cell of Mumbai Police in connection with leak of Maharashtra Intelligence Department data on police transfer-posting,” Mumbai police said in a statement.
“The summon has been sent via an e-mail, asking him to appear before it on October 14,” it added.
An intelligence report was prepared by former state intelligence department chief Rashmi Shukla regarding corruption in transfer posting, said the police.
Police further informed that an FIR has been registered in the Cyber Cell of Bandra Kurla Complex under the Official Secret Act in connection with the case.
The case relates to the `leak’ of a report prepared by IPS officer Rashmi Shukla about alleged corruption in police transfers in Maharashtra when she headed the state intelligence department. Jaiswal was the director general of police during this period.
It was alleged that phones of senior politicians and officials were tapped illegally during the inquiry and the report was leaked deliberately, but the FIR registered in this regard by the cyber cell does not name Shukla or any other official.
