Gujarat govt to explore legal options against snoopgate probe

Gujarat government on Thursday took strong objection to the Centre’s decision to order a judicial probe into the alleged snooping of a Bangalore-based woman by police at the behest of then minister of state for home Amit Shah and said it will explore legal options against the move.

The BJP government questioned the rationale of setting up the judicial commission, when the state has already formed a similar panel to inquiry into the raging scandal which came to light last month.

‘As per the Commission of Inquiry Act, it is illegal to appoint another commission, when one commission has been appointed to inquiry into a particular incident,’ Gujarat government spokesperson Nitin Patel said on Thursday night. ‘We will explore all legal options against the commission of inquiry constituted by the central government,’ said Patel, who is also Gujarat’s finance minister. This is an attempt by the UPA government to harass Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, he alleged.
