Haryana health minister Anil Vij on Friday noticed a sleuth of criminal investigation department (CID) in his office on the eighth floor of the civil secretariat here and, suspecting that he was prying into his (Vij’s) working, grilled him for over two hours.

Vij noticed a person moving in and around his office around 3pm and asked for his credentials. He identified himself as Surinder Kumar, a CID sleuth. On this, Vij grilled him, seeking to know what was his purpose of moving in and around his office and whether he was trying to pry into the his (Vij’s) working.

Not only Vij called up director general of police (DGP) YP Singal but also two other ministers Vikram Yadav and Kavita Jain. While Singal came a while later, the two ministers came in his office and expressed their solidarity with Vij that there should not be any snooping of the ministers.

However, Singal on his arrival informed Vij that Surinder had been a CID employee since 1991, and currently his duty was to move around on the eighth floor to check and avert entry or movement of any unscrupulous element who could create nuisance in the secretariat. He, however, asked inspector general of police Sandeep Khirwar to further look into the matter.

However, when asked whether he suspected the state government getting snooping done on him, Vij did not comment and asked the newspersons to first let the matter be probed into by Khirwar.
