Breaking : Bug in Defense minister- Ak Antony’s office, probe ordered

Defense minister of India- AK Antony

Hand held detectors of Military Intelligence officials detected a presence of monitoring devices in defense minister Ak Antony’s office in Feb 16.

Defense Secretary Shashikant Sharma took up the matter with Intelligence Bureau(IB). After the detection of the bug the MI personnel were immediately asked to leave by Defence Ministry security.
The Home Ministry was alerted while the IB was called in. High level probe has been ordered.
There are many suspects in this regard, considering alleged mistrust between Army and the Ministry.
Though Army cannot tap phones it is said to have passive cellular surveillance .
It is worth to note here that, In June 2011 Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s office was also bugged. Mukherjee had spoken about discovery of at least 16 identical adhesive like gum sticks from key rooms of the Finance Ministry . There were imprints of bug like devices on these gum sticks as well.
