Complimenting the Delhi Police for unearthing the corporate espionage racket, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said it should now target the “top people” benefiting from the leak.
“Compliments (to the) Delhi Police for busting espionage racket. During interrogation, police should try to reach top people, who would benefit from leaked info,” he tweeted.
Five senior executives from top energy firms and two consultants are among those arrested in the sensational corporate espionage scandal in which classified documents including an input for upcoming Finance Minister’s budget speech were allegedly leaked.
The AAP on Friday demanded setting up of a commission to probe the matter in a time-bound manner. The party has often been at loggerheads with the Delhi Police. In his earlier stint as a Chief minister, Kejriwal had staged a dharna outside Rail Bhavan demanding action against police officials in three different cases, of which one was related to a rape of a foreign national.
