New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the probe into a case of alleged hacking of emails of state`s Additional Advocate General Tushaar Mehta by Gujarat-cadre`s suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt.

A bench of justices Aftab Alam and Ranjana Prakash Desai stayed the probe on Bahtt`s plea that he is being targeted for accusing Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi of misusing the state machinery against Muslims during 2002 post-Godhra riots.

A case was registered against Bhatt in Vastrapur police station here on August 5 last year on Mehta`s complaint.

Mehta had alleged in his complaint that Bhatt had hacked into his e-mail account and had passed the information to others.

"These communications contain my personal, official, and legal correspondences which were not only unauthorisedly seen by Bhatt but also shared with others for ulterior motive, which, apart from being a criminal offence, violates my right of privacy," Mehta had said in his complaint.

Incidentally, Sanjiv Bhatt and Tushar Mehta had long been family friends.
