Pune : deccan expressIPS Rashmi Shukla | Even as arguments are being held in the court on the illegal phone tapping, a case has been registered against former police commissioner Rashmi Shukla at the Bund Garden police station. The case has been registered as per the recommendation of the committee probing the phone tapping incident under the Telegraph Act.


A case has been registered against former commissioner of Maharashtra State Intelligence Department Dr Rashmi Shukla at the Bund Garden police station. At present, she is posted at Hyderabad on central deputation. According to the Pune police, during the monsoon session of the Maharashtra Legislature 2021, a high-level three-member panel had been set up under the chairmanship of former DGP Sanjay Pandey to examine the phone tapping which took place from 2015 to 2019.


The panel had submitted a report to the government and as per a government order, a case was registered against Rashmi Shukla and others under the section 26 of the Indian Wire Act.


Senior police officer Rashmi Shukla tapped phones of some private persons by misguiding the state government. Her action is a misuse of the Indian Telephone Act and violates the privacy of the concerned people. This was mentioned in the report of the panel. Leader of the opposition Devendra Fadnavis had alleged that irregularities had taken place in transfer of police officials based on the report on Rashmi Shukla.


According to the Indian Telegram Act, it is incorrect to indulge in phone tapping in political conflicts, business conflicts and family disputes. However, the phone tapping was done for a different purpose other than the intended by misguiding the government.


Since this matter was serious, an explanation was sought from Rashmi Shukla.
