Former Trinamool Congress MP Mukul Roy, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), approached the Delhi High Court on Friday against the West Bengal government for allegedly tapping his telephones.

Roy, alleging that his mobile phones were being tapped for many months now, sought direction from his telecoms service providers to submit in the court if any communication was issued by the Centre or the West Bengal government to intercept telegraphic messages originating from or received by his or any of his relatives.

The West Bengal government had been tapping phones of several other persons not belonging to the TMC, claimed the BJP leader.

The court would hear Roy’s case on November 20.
