INDIA: On March 13, a team of BKC cyber police in Mumbai recorded the testimony of senior BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis at his apartment for about two hours in connection with a case of alleged unlawful phone tapping.

Fadnavis told the media after recording his testimony, “In the transfer, posting matter, a police team recorded my statement. I answered all of the questions. For the past six months, the Maharashtra government has ignored the case. I am the case’s whistleblower.”

“I submitted the documents regarding State’s transfer case to Union Home Secretary. I haven’t shared the documents with the media,” he stated.

When Rashmi Shukla was the chief of the State Intelligence Department, she is accused of unlawfully tapping the phones of political leaders and top bureaucrats (SID).

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has highlighted a letter supposedly addressed by her to the then-Director General of Police in Maharashtra concerning alleged corruption in police transfers.

The letter also included details of intercepted phone calls, prompting the MVA government to accuse Shukla of tapping phones without authorization.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra minister Dilip Walse Patil took a shot at Fadnavis, claiming that the BJP leader failed to respond to police questioning about the issue.

“Devendra Fadnavis was not summoned but was sent a set of questions to answer. Today, a police team went to his residence as he did not answer those questions sent to him regarding the case,” Patil said.

“Opposition is doing politics on this case. Till now, 5-6 notices have been given to Devendra Fadnavis. A case has been registered against 5 unknown persons. 24 people statements recorded till now and more will be recorded in the future,” Patil added.

Fadnavis said on Saturday that he received a notice informing him that he would be summoned by the Mumbai Police on Sunday in connection with the transfer and posting issue.
