A court issued a notice to the Delhi Police on Wednesday seeking its response by Thursday on a bail plea of a policeman arrested along with three others for allegedly illegally retrieving call details of BJP leader Arun Jaitley.
Constable Arvind Dabas moved his bail plea before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Amit Bansal, who also extended the judicial custody of all the four accused till March 20, after the Special Cell of Delhi Police said their probe into the case was on.
“All the accused are remanded in judicial custody till March 20,” the CMM said and extended the judicial custody of constable Dabas and three private detectives.
During the hearing, advocate Naushad Ahmad Khan, appearing for Dabas, moved the bail application saying that the offences under which his client has been booked are bailable.
He also raised the issue of court’s jurisdiction to adjudicate the case, saying CMM Vidya Prakash had earlier declined to hear the bail plea on the issue and that the same “controversy” is still not sorted out.
