Kumar thus misused the access that was provided to him by the Gurgaon Police and shared it with his accomplice who is presently in Mumbai.
Kumar obtained these call details and handed over to this aide in a meeting at a posh Delhi hotel.
Investigating officer, inspector Sajjan Kumar further added:
“Kumar himself didn’t know the owner of the phone numbers. He would share the details with the Mumbai man and would occasionally take money in return.”
The matter had come to light when head constable Rajesh Kumar, who is also a computer operator and posted in Bilaspur, had received a complaint that the official police email ID of Crime unit 6, Bilaspur had been used to request call details of two numbers.
