Devendra Fadnavis appeared before Mumbai police today in connection with a phone-tapping investigation
The Mumbai police have issued a summons to BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis in connection with an alleged illegal phone tapping case. Fadnavis, the Maharashtra Assembly’s Leader of Opposition, has been called to the BKC Cyber Cell at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
Fadnavis stated during a news conference on Saturday that he previously served as Maharashtra’s home minister. Even if a bogus case has been filed, he will go [to the police].
However, as Leader of the Opposition, he has certain advantages, and no one can question the source of information, he continued.
Former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis also expressed amazement that the state administration did nothing about the transfer posting fraud for six months. Instead, he told reporters in Mumbai, they want to find the person who revealed the scheme.
Devendra Fadnavis stated that he received the warning because he exposed the MVA government. He further stated that he wants the inquiry into this [phone tapping matter] turned over to the Central Bureau of Investigation [CBI]. In such circumstances, the state government is unable to undertake a proper investigation.
According to the news agency PTI, the notice sent to Fadnavis states that questionnaires in connection with the matter were previously provided to him in sealed envelopes, but he did not answer them.
According to one official, Devendra Fadnavis received two notifications and three letters requesting his response and summoning him to appear before Mumbai police.
