Bengaluru, Aug 21: Former Karnataka Minister and senior Congress leader H K Patil today demanded that the terms of the Phone Tapping issue which is now referred to CBI for investigation, should also include Media and Common man if their telephone was also tapped.
In a letter to Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, he urged inclusion of Media and common man if their telephone also tapped. " It is not enough only inquiry and investigation of political leaders and their associates, relatives is done in telephone tapping it should also include media and common man if tapped. Legal actions on the basis of information of tapping should be taken.
In his two page letter, Patil said that " ordering inquiry against these persons will not help to complete the process of investigation unless inclusion of important section such as media and common man is included. The investigation should not be witch hunting only to pinpoint the person who was engaged in tapping but it should bring all those persons whose crimes have come to light following information obtained through telephone tapping".
