Bhopal, Feb 15 (IANS) Druv Saxena, who was arrested on the charge of spying for Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, tapped the phones of prominent people on the bidding of a national-level office-bearer of the BJP, Congress Madhya Pradesh unit chief Arun Yadav said on Wednesday.

He said he had written to the state Director General of Police to demand a probe into the role of the said Bharatiya Janata Party leader, adding that Saxena and this leader had been meeting in the past.

Yadav said a probe should be conducted into the political links of the arrested person as well as how much he was paid for tapping phones.

State Congress unit Chief Spokesperson K.K. Mishra released pictures of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha website that allegedly described Dhruv Saxena as coordinator of the IT Cell of Bhopal unit of the outfit.

He demanded a detailed probe into the matter.

State Bharatiya Janata Party’s Media Cell leader Lokendra Prashar said the party had already issued a list of authorised office-bearers of its organisation. “I don’t know from where the Congress has got this fake list,” he said.
