Women’s, students` group protest alleged snooping of woman
New Delhi: Several women`s groups, student groups, and other democratic organisations today staged a protest here at Jantar Mantar demanding a CBI inquiry into the alleged snooping of a young woman in Gujarat.
The protesters expressed concern and asked how come taxpayer`s money was spent on policemen following the woman around on flights, in hotels and malls, and how her phone was illegally tapped.
Two investigative portals, Cobrapost and Gulail, had claimed on November 15 that Amit Shah, former Home Minister of Gujarat and Narendra Modi`s close aide, had ordered illegal surveillance of a woman at the behest of one "saheb".
They had released taped conversation between Shah and an IPS officer to back up their claim.
Congress had promptly demanded a probe by a sitting Supreme Court judge and alleged Modi has lost the moral right to be BJP`s Prime Ministerial candidate.
BJP rejected the charge saying the woman has not lodged any complaint.
