    In Hyderabad, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Telangana is demanding a CBI investigation into alleged phone tapping. BJP MP K Laxman stated that Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy should request a CBI probe into the phone tapping that occurred during the previous government’s rule.

    Laxman expressed concern over the phone tapping case, especially with the recent arrests of police officials allegedly involved. He mentioned allegations of phone tapping during by-elections in Dubbaka, Munugode, and Huzurabad Assembly seats. Laxman accused the Revanth Reddy government of protecting the true culprits in the case.

    The BJP leader criticized the Congress and BRS parties for engaging in a “Tom and Jerry fight” by making allegations against each other during elections to deceive the public. Laxman claimed that cash intended for the ruling party during elections was transported in police vehicles and that realtors and jewellers were targeted through phone tapping.

    The issue of phone tapping came to light with the arrest of Deputy Superintendent of Police D. Praneeth Rao from the Special Intelligence Branch (SIB). Three more officials were subsequently arrested, including former Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Task Force Radha Kishan Rao. Police claimed that a Special Operations Team within SIB was established to surveil political leaders, their families, and dissidents within the ruling party.
