As the voices for a clarification on the "snooping row" become louder in political circles, Congress MP Priya Dutt on Saturday said that a thorough investigation should be conducted in the case to bring out the truth about the surveillance of a woman architect in 2009 by the Gujarat Police on the alleged instructions of Amit Shah, a close aide of Gujarat CM Narendra Modi.
Speaking on the sidelines of an event in Vadodara, Dutt said that the Gujarat government is accused of using public money to stalk a woman, which calls for a complete investigation. Dutt was in Vadodara to inaugurate the IT workshop for Congress workers.
"Instead of being silent on this matter, the Gujarat government must initiate an independent probe. Otherwise, a retired or sitting SC judge should be asked to investigate into this. It is not a matter to be silent on," she said.
"The issue clearly revolves around encroachment of a woman's privacy and more so the use of public money to do so...The people of Gujarat must ask this question to the government here," she added.
