New Delhi, Jan 17: Former Orissa High Court judge I M Quddusi, who is on bail after his arrest last year in connection with a medical college graft case, today moved a city court seeking a probe into the leakage of transcripts of telephone conversation between him and two other accused persons in the media.
Taking note, Special Judge Manoj Jain sought response from the CBI by January 22 on the plea which alleged that the document was confidential and was not even supplied to the accused but given to people outside the probe agency.
The application, filed on Quddusi's behalf by advocate Vijay Aggarwal, said this gave rise to "grave suspicion and apprehension of interference of third parties into the investigation of the present matter".
Some major dailies had given out details of the purported transcript of the alleged conversation between three persons including Quddusi, claiming that their phones were tapped by the CBI.
The reports had spoken of conversations between Quddusi, a middleman and B P Yadav, owner of UP-based medical college, Prasad Education Trust.
