Sanjay Raut slams Centre over phone-tapping of Shiv Sena, NCP leaders


Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday accused the central government of protecting police officers who are politically biased after the Mumbai Police informed that the phones of Raut and NCP leader Eknath Khadse were being tapped under the pretext of law enforcement. 

He said, “Our privacy was breached. Centre giving protection to such police officers who are working for one party.”

The Mumbai Police said that there were few more names listed as anti-social elements in State Intelligence Department (SID) in a letter that was sent to the Additional Chief Secretary (ACS) Home for phone tapping. Following which, the ACS had given the permission for the same.  

The phone of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Eknath Khadse was tapped for 67 days while, Raut’s phone was tapped for 60 days. 

Raut accused then SID commissioner Rashmi Shukla of falsely labelling the two leaders.  He said, “The then SID commissioner Rashmi Shukla falsely labelled all of us whose phones were tapped as anti-social elements during government formation in 2019.” 

Earlier in the second week of the month, the Mumbai Police recorded the statement of Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut in the illegal phone tapping case against senior IPS officer Rashmi Shukla.
