Rajnath Singh assures Mukul Roy of 'appropriate action' after ex-TMC MP alleges phone tapping by West Bengal govt

New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh has assured BJP leader Mukul Roy of appropriate action after examining his complaint that the West Bengal government was monitoring his movements.

In a letter to Singh in October, Roy, who recently quit the Trinamool Congress to join the BJP, alleged that his phones were been "illegally tapped" by the West Bengal government.

"I have received your letter dated 3 October, 2017, regarding alleged monitoring of your movements by the state administration. The matter is being examined for appropriate action," Singh has written to Roy.

Roy received Singh's reply on Friday. Roy has also filed a case against the state administration in the Delhi High Court on the matter. Trinamool Congress administers West Bengal.
