Karnataka CM Yediyurappa orders CBI probe into alleged phone tapping
By Thehindu 18-Aug-2019
Sandeep Patil, Joint Commissioner (Crime Bengaluru), submitted an interim report on the issue recommending a high-level probe into the issue. While the State police chief recommended a probe by the State Criminal Investigation Department, the Chief Minister opted for a CBI probe.
This comes amidst widespread allegations that former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy had got telephones of several politicians and rebel MLAs tapped during the political crisis in June-July. Former MLA, now disqualified for defection, A.H. Vishwanath had alleged the phones of all rebel MLAs were tapped and the former Chief Minister had even “blackmailed” them with exposure of audio tapes if they did not withdraw their resignations. Even coalition partner Congress had joined the chorus in demanding an impartial probe into the alleged scandal, amidst speculations that phones of even close associates of some senior Congressmen were tapped.
