Snooping: NCW to issue notice to Modi government
The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Wednesday said it will send a notice to Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government in connection to the snooping row.
"The Gujarat government must send a written reply if there was a violation of privacy," NCW member Nirmala Samant was quoted as saying by CNN-IBN.
"The NCW has refused to entertain the letter written by the father of the girl who was spied upon," reported the news channel.
There was a new twist in the case of surveillance on the young woman in 2009 by the Gujarat government after 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 NCW said there is no need to probe the matter further.
His letter came out on a day a senior bureaucrat in Gujarat 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.
