Posted on: 05:19 PM IST Mar 02, 2013
New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday rejected the bail plea of constable Arvind Dabas, an accused in the Arun Jaitley phone tapping case. While rejecting his bail plea, the court said it did not have jurisdiction to hear it.
Dabas is accused of providing call details of prominent politicians to a private detective in Delhi, including that of Jaitley.
Police have claimed that this might be a result of political in-fighting within the Bharatiya Janata Party.
Police likely to question BJP leader Sudhanshu Mittal:
BJP leader Sudhanshu Mittal is likely to be questioned by the Delhi Police in the high profile case of tapping of senior party leader Arun Jaitley's call records. The police are likely to question him over his alleged links with detective Anurag Singh and whether he masterminded the entire operation.
Investigators are also closely investigating whether the internal rivalry within the BJP has led to this espionage operation. Sources have told CNN-IBN that Sudhanshu Mittal's call details were also taken out by Anurag Singh.
Anurag and his aides had been taking out call records of top BJP leaders over the past six to eight months. Three private detectives and one police constable have been arrested so far.
