New Delhi:

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday raised questions over alleged tapping of judges’phones. Aam Aadami Party chief called such an act the biggest assault on judiciary, if true. 

“Have seen two judges say that "don't talk on phone, it is being tapped". I said phones of the judges can't be tapped,” Arvind Kejriwal said. 

He further added, “I don't know if it is true or not, but if this is true, then it’s dangerous. Where is the independence of the judiciary then?”

In response, Union Law Minister RS Prasad denied the allegations, “I wish to deny with all the authority at my command that the phones of judges have been tapped in India at all,” he said.
