CBI books ex-NIA ASP

NEW DELHI, Aug 28:
The CBI has booked former National Investigation Agency (NIA) ASP Jalaj Srivastava for obtaining call details records (CDR) and analysis from Vodafone in an alleged fraudulent manner, officials said on Friday.
The agency acted on a complaint from the NIA, which sought action against Srivastava, now posted in his parent cadre-Border Security Force-they said. After getting the complaint, the CBI sought a sanction from the home ministry to book Srivastava. It booked Srivastava after getting the ministry’s nod. The agency has alleged that between 2017 and 2018, working as an Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Srivastava abused his official position to procure the CDR of two mobile phone numbers on two occasions and tried the same for the third time but failed, the officials said. It is alleged that Avinash Kaur, who used to live in the same building as Srivastava, had asked him to obtain the CDR of one Sudesh Saini, they added.
Saini did not have any connection with any case probed by the NIA, the officials said. (PTI)
