Koppal: Disqualified MLA Prathap Gowda Patil on Thursday alleged that the police officers were also involved in the phone tapping.

Speaking on the issue Prathap Gowda said that his and personal secretary phone was tapped by the previous government and further alleged that the police were also involved in this case.

” The phone-tapping scandal should be handed over to the Special Investigation Team (SIT),” he added.

On Wednesday, disqualified JD(S) MLA from Hunsur, A H Vishwanath who had served as the JDS state president and turned rebel later, accused the previous government of tapping phones and spying on more than 300 leaders including him.

“My phone was tapped. I was among the 300 people whose phones were tapped,” Vishwanath told.

Vishwanath went on to claim that the matter in fact had come to light six months ago when the Congress MLA H K Patil and BJP MLA R Ashoka had alleged that their phone calls were intercepted.

“It had actually started since then. They (the previous Congress-JDS coalition government) did not spare even some clerks,” Vishwanath added, referring to the alleged phone tapping of some politicians, journalists and officials.
