Snooping: IAS takes on Modi-Shah

Gandhinagar, Jan 6 : : Gujarat's suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma on Monday tried to lodge an FIR against Chief Minister and BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and his associate and former home minister Amit Shah here in the snooping on a young woman case but police did not file the same while accepting his complaint, said reports.

The Gujarat Police reportedly refused to take the FIR and he went to file the same in the office of the DSP, reports said.

"I will approach court if police refused my FIR," said Sharma.

But reports said his complaint has been accepted though the FIR was not filed.

Sharma had said earlier that he was persecuted by the state government led by Narendra Modi back in 2010 because he knew the relationship between a state politician and the woman who is in the middle of the snooping controversy linking Modi and Amit Shah.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday slammed the Centre for approving setting up of an enquiry commission into alleged snooping charges against Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government.

BJP leader Arun Jaitley criticized the move as one against the federal structure.

Investigative news portal Gulail recently released 39 new audio tapes on the alleged snooping row involving Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's key aide and then state home minister Amit Shah.

On Nov 15, Gulail and CobraPost had claimed they had exposed how a young woman was being stalked by the Gujarat Police at the behest of Shah, then state home minister, who in turn had been carrying out the order of one "Saheb" (hinting at Modi) in 2009.

However, in the case, the father of the girl said the move was at their request and his daughter was aware that her movements were being monitored for her safety.

The father of the girl in a letter to the National Commission for Women said there is no need to probe the matter further. His letter came out after Pradeep Sharma said alleged that the Modi government persecuted him because he knew about the "snooping".

The girl's father also said that he knew Modi over two decades as against the claim of the bureaucrat Pradeep Sharma that he introduced him to Modi.
