New Delhi: Reliance Infocomm on Monday
refuted in the Supreme Court the allegations that it had
illegally tapped former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh`s
phone, saying that it had acted "in a bonafide manner".

In a 21-page affidavit, submitted to a bench of
justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly, the telecom company
said, "It has acted in a bonafide manner and has followed the
prescribed procedures."

The company said it has cooperated fully with the
Delhi Police in the investigations and had acted with "perfect
honesty and care and caution".

Its response came after the court, in the earlier
hearing, pulled up the company and the government in the
alleged illegal and unauthorised phone tapping of Amar Singh.

The former SP leader had moved a petition seeking a
judicial inquiry into the "illegal" tapping of his telephone
allegedly at the behest of his political rivals including the
Congress party.
