A retired judge of the apex court will go into the matter.
Two investigative portals, Cobrapost and Gulail, had claimed on November 15 that Amit Shah, the former home minister of Gujarat and Narendra Modi’s close aide, had ordered illegal surveillance of a woman at the behest of one ‘saheb’ and they had released taped conversation between Shah and an IPS officer to back up their claim.
The snooping scandal has seen a war of words between the Congress and the BJP.
The Congress has been asking Mr Modi to come clean on the matter, whereas the BJP has been defending its prime ministerial candidate for 2014 General elections, accusing the grand old party of playing dirty politics.
The Gujarat government has set up its own commission but it has been alleged that the matter goes beyond the boundary of Mr Modi’s state.
Meanwhile, giving a new turn to the snooping row, the father of the woman had told the National Commission for Women (NCW) that his daughter did not want any probe into the issue as there was no encroachment on her privacy.
He had also told the commission that he had himself made the request to the Gujarat CM to take the steps in his daughter’s interest, due to personal and family reasons.
