More than a week after Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh alleged that his phones were being tapped, Delhi Police on Sunday carried out raids at several places in neighbouring Haryana.

Police has been raiding various places in an effort to nab those involved in forging documents and illegally tapping phones of Singh, who is the Samajwadi Party general secretary.

"We are carrying out raids in different areas," said Ajay Kumar, deputy commissioner (special cell), adding that this was not the first time police were conducting searches.

But he refused to give further details saying it could affect the progress of the investigations. "I cannot give details of the case as it may hamper the progress of the case," said Kumar.

"We have not been able to make more arrests in the case," said Kumar.

Police have arrested Bhupendra and Anurag, both private detectives, and Kuldeep, an employee of Reliance Infocomm, in connection with the tapping of Amar Singh's phones over the last two months.

Kumar added that these raids were being carried out on the basis of the information received during the questioning of these three people. Anurag is in the custody of the special cell sleuths till January 9.

Members of the special cell had registered a case on December 30 last year against Bhupendra for forging letters in the name of R Narayan Swamy, principal secretary (Home) and Ranjit Narayan, joint commissioner (Crime Branch).

Police have registered a case of forgery, cheating and criminal conspiracy against the three people.
