New Delhi, Feb 16 : A Delhi Police constable was arrested for allegedly trying to access the details of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley's call records, reports said on Saturday.

"Constable Arvind Dabas claimed he wanted the records for personal reasons," CNN-IBN reported quoting sources.

"Dabbas used the login and password of an assistant commissioner of police to try and access the call details. However, Jaitley's call records were blocked after the request was sent," the news channel reported.

Reacting on the matter, the BJP demanded an answer from Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde.

"We demand from the Home Minister that he must come clean and tell the nation who ordered this," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters.

"This is unauthorised tapping. We are taking the matter seriously and we will raise the issue in Parliament," he said.

The incident reportedly happened last month.
