Snooping row: Web portal releases pictures of Modi with woman
New Delhi – Gulail.com, the investigative web portal, which had earlier charged BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and his aide Amit Shah with a government-sponsored snooping of a woman, has now published a picture of the Gujarat chief minister with the woman.
The pictures were taken during the first edition of the ‘Kutch Sharad Utsav’ in October 2005, the website claimed.
In one of the pictures, Modi is engaged in animated conversation with IAS officer Pradeep Sharma and the woman with her face blurred.
In an alleged taped conversation between Amit Shah and Gujarat police officer G L Singhal aired by news portals Cobrapost and Gulail, Shah was instructing Singhal to closely monitor the movements of the woman referred to in the report as “Madhuri”, which is not her real name.
Shah, who is currently heading the BJP election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, is alleged to have misused his powers and the state police machinery for the illegal surveillance of a young woman in August 2009 at the behest of his “saheb.”
