Apart from senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley, who are the VVIPs that three private detectives have sought call data records for?
According to an Indian Express report, call data records related to five mobile phones, including three registered in the name of the BJP leader, were sought during the last four months and the request was sent from the email account of an Assistant Commissioner of Police.
However, the FIR filed by the police reportedly mentions that the mobile phone data related to two other VVIPs had also been sought by the constable in his applications to mobile service providers.
Who are the two VVIPs? It hasn't been mentioned.
So far the Delhi police has arrested four persons for their alleged involvement in accessing the senior BJP leader's call data records illegally. The police is still to reveal who had funded the operation to obtain the call data records.
Apart from suggesting the possibility of a corporate entity spying on the BJP leader, the police has also suggested that the constable may have obtained the data to check on his own financial deals. The latter seems less likely now given the alleged involvement of three private detectives, one of whom has reportedly been involved in the phone tapping of former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh.
One of the accused, Anurag reportedly ran a detective agency called 'V-Detect' in Delhi and would obtain call records for clients. He also reportedly worked for Indian intelligence agencies in the past before he was dumped by them. Anurag also reportedly spent two years in jail for tapping Amar Singh's phone.
