ISec company accused of spying on 91 NSE officers. Former Mumbai commissioner’s company ISec accused of spying on 91 NSE officers, ED found evidence.
A new disclosure has been made in the new money laundering case related to Chitra Ramakrishna, who was the Managing Director of the National Stock Exchange (NSE).
The leading media agency, quoting sources, claimed that the ED has learned that a company belonging to former Mumbai commissioner Sanjay Pandey had allegedly spied on at least 91 NSE office bearers.
It is alleged that such a large number of phones of NSE officers were tapped on the instructions of Chitra Ramakrishna.
The ED registered a case against Sanjay Pandey and Chitra in this case on Thursday.
According to a leading media agency, an ED official told that on the instructions of Chitra, Pandey’s company had tapped the phone. Chitra is being questioned in this matter.
We are finding out what was the reason behind so many NSE officials getting their phones tapped.
The leading media agency report, quoting sources, claimed that the ED has found documentary and electronic evidence that Sanjay Pandey’s company iSec Services Pvt Ltd had tapped the phones of 91 NSE officials.
The agency has also got transcripts and voice recordings, mostly of conversations related to the functioning of the NSE and information related to stocks.
ISec Company was established in March 2001. Sanjay Pandey was not in service at that time. He resigned from the post of director in 2006 and made his mother Santosh and son Armaan as directors.
According to a leading media agency, another ED official claimed that despite his resignation, the company was being run by Pandey.
Almost all the conversations between senior officials of iSec and NSE were done through Pandey’s email.
The ED questioned Sanjay Pandey on July 5 in the 2018 NSE scam case.
This is a different matter from phone tapping, in which some brokers earned huge money by manipulating the co-location facility with the connivance of NSE officials.
The present ED case has been registered on the basis of the CBI FIR, in which Sanjay Pandey, his company, Chitra Ramakrishna, and others have been made accused.
