JAIPUR: The authorities didn’t intercept the telephones of any public representative — MLAs and MPs – but just exploited the phone middleman Sanjay Jain who was then detained for allegedly plotting to dislodge the Ashok Gehlot authorities, informed sources told TOI on Monday.
The union home ministry has sought a report on this Sanjay Jain telephone interception case by the primary secretary of Rajasthan, Rajeeva Swarup. The report is nearly ready and will be transmitted into MHA on Tuesday, according to informed sources in the home division. From the sound clips published by Congress celebration, Jain might be heard supposedly talking to Congress MLA Bhanwarlal Sharma and marriage minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.
“A review meeting was held for many mobile interceptions under the Indian Telegraph Act on Sunday and such interceptions were discovered to be carried out in accord with the conditions of the law. No telephone of any public representative (MLAs, MPs) was intercepted,” said an informed source from the home division.
According to this source, just Sanjay Jain’s telephone was intercepted and that he was heard talking to Congress MLA Bhanwarlal Sharma and marriage minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. The telephones of both of these people weren’t intercepted, said the source. The telephone interceptions are complete under the Indian Telegraph Act.
“The MHA has sought a report on this Sanjay Jain telephone interception case. They’ve asked us just about this specific situation (Sanjay Jain telephone interception instance ). Depending on the data police needed, his (Jain’s) telephone was intercepted. He had been among the primary persons (connected to alleged horse trading). They (MHA) have searched information about that,” said the source.
