A court on Wednesday sought the Delhi Police’s response on the alleged “illegal detention” of the wife of one of the accused arrested for illegally retrieving call detail records of BJP leader Arun Jaitley.
Chief metropolitan magistrate Sanjay Bansal passed the order on allegations made by arrested private detective Neeraj that the special cell of Delhi Police was illegally detaining his wife who is also carrying a four-month-old baby.
Let comments be called from DCP concerned on this aspect,” the court said. Neeraj’s counsel had alleged that “the probe agency had called his wife to its office at 1 am in the night and today also, she has been detained since 9 am and her mobile phone is also not responding.”
However, the investigating officer denied the allegations.
The allegations were made by Neeraj when he and co-accused constable Arvind Dabas were produced before the court after expiry of a day’s police custody in a fresh FIR.
The police had registered a fresh FIR against Neeraj and Dabas, saying they used certain SIM cards in the crime. The agency had interrogated the duo in Tihar jail for a day and then got their police remand for a day on March 12.
