Centre yet to finalise judge to probe snoopgate

A fortnight has passed since the announcement of setting up of a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to probe the “snoopgate scandal” involving Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi but the Centre is yet to finalise a judge to conduct the inquiry.

Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Friday said a decision would be taken in a couple of days. “We will appoint a judge very soon. The decision will be made in a day or two,” he said.

Shinde said it was not correct that judges were unwilling to take the assignment. However, he said, “There are some problems but we will do it soon,” he said.

Besides the snoopgate scandal, the committee, to be headed by a retired Supreme Court judge, will also look into charges of snooping on Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh by the previous BJP government when he was in the opposition as well as the leaking of the Call Data Records (CDR) of BJP leader Arun Jaitley in Delhi.
