BJP leader Arun Jaitley on Wednesday said the procurement of his call detail records (CDRs) could be an outsourced operation of the government or a private “rogue” effort.
The leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha also sought to know whether the Delhi police was trying to protect the mastermind behind the controversy.
In his blog, Jaitley said that three attempts were made to get call detail records of mobile phones used by him, his drivers and his son. Jaitley revealed that on two occasions for two different periods, the CDRs were sought ostensibly on the grounds that they were required in connection with the Ponty Chadha murder case.
On the third occasion, a head constable of Delhi Police sought the details and successfully obtained them.
