New Delhi: The Delhi Police has swung into action following the Call Detail Records (CDRs) case and restricted the use of email IDs of police officials for seeking information on the CDRs. While earlier, ACP level officers could mail to seek information on CDRs, now only DCP and Additional CP level officers can seek information about call records. The rule, however, remains unchanged for Special Cell and the Crime Branch.
The move comes days after it was revealed that the email ID of a Delhi ACP was used by constable Arvind Dabas to gather information on call records of BJP leader Arun Jaitley.
Two more Delhi ACPs were named in an investigation report filed by Mumbai Police, although Delhi Police says that no communication was made by the Mumbai Police regarding this.
