Oil paper leak: Accused may tamper with evidence, says cops
The Delhi Police, opposing the bail pleas of three accused in the leak of secret documents from the oil ministry, on Wednesday told a local court that they were analysing the “deep rooted nexus” and releasing the accused would lead to tampering with the evidence.
The investigators made the submission while opposing the bail plea of the three corporate executives — Shailesh Saxena from RIL, Vinay Kumar from Essar and Subhash Chandra from Jubilant Energy.
“If accused are released at this stage, they may influence witnesses and tamper with evidence which may affect the investigation,” investigating officer told Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Khanagwal.
The IO filed a written reply to the bail pleas saying the probe was at a preliminary stage and the whole nexus was to be unearthed.
