New Delhi: The government today ordered a probe into the leaks of recorded tapes of conversations between corporate lobbyist Niira Radia, her clients and certain journalists among others.
The order to initiate a probe into the matter comes on a day when Tata group chief Ratan Tata approached the Supreme Court seeking action against those involved in the leakage of tapes containing his conversation with Radia.
Home Ministry sources said the probe would be conducted by the Intelligence Bureau and the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) and will focus on finding out who leaked it and how.
Incidentally, the CBDT had conducted the phone tappings over a period of time for which the sanction was given by the Home Ministry.
The secret tapes had come into the public domain recently after certain media groups published transcripts of the same.
