Shiva Kant Tripathi on Friday created a fresh controversy by submitting another police complaint against Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Amar Singh and Vodafone company at Ashiana police station.
Tripathi had earlier created controversy after he lodged an FIR against Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan in Kanpur.
He alleged that the SP general secretary Amar Singh tried to defame him by disclosing call details of his mobile phone. He said Vodafone company is equally responsible for it as they disclosed his personal details.
Tripathi talking to HT said Amar Singh scripted a criminal conspiracy against him with the help of officials of the Vodafone company. Singh procured details of his mobile phone and publicised it through different electronic channels.
He reiterated that nobody is authorised to disclose mobile details of any person. Only security and investigating agencies could procure it and they also have to achieve it through proper process.
He accused Singh and the mobile service provider company for committing cyber crime. He said the police should impose proper sections of Cyber Crime. Besides he also demanded to slap sections 500 and 501 of the Indian Penal Code for defaming his image and printing or engraving matter known to be defamatory. Tripathi had mentioned his address as K-1286, Ashiana, in an application submitted to the police.
Ashiana Station Officer (SO) Kalyan Singh Sagar confirmed that Tripathi had submitted an application in this connection. His application has been received but the police are confirming genuineness of his allegations before registering an FIR in this regard. However, DIG Prem Prakash feigned ignorance about the entire case.
