Guj govt forms commission of inquiry

The Gujarat government has formed a commission of inquiry to look into the allegations of snooping and stalking of a woman architect by senior police officials in 2009.

The two-member panel, comprising of retired high court judge Sugna Bhatt and senior bureaucrat KC Kapoor, has been asked to submit its report to the state government within three months.  Earlier this month, two news websites, cobrapost.com and Gulail, said that the Central Bureau of Investigation or CBI has audio tapes that allegedly reveal then home minister Amit Shah instructing police officers to tail the woman at all times, as insisted upon by ‘saheb’ or boss.

The Congress alleges that the ‘saheb’ reference is to Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.  The Congress on Monday took the controversy to the president, alleging that the expansive surveillance was ordered by Modi.
