Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has taken on big industrial houses during his campaign against graft, on  Saturday sent out a tweet complementing the Delhi Police for unearthing the corporate espionage racket and said it should now target the “top people” benefitting from the leak. Incidentally, the Delhi police force does not come under the Delhi government but reports directly to union home ministry through the lieutenant governor of Delhi.


The AAP on Friday demanded setting up of a commission to probe the matter in a time-bound manner.

The leaked documents are not just about the dealings of the petroleum ministry but also pertain to issues related to finance, coal and power ministries.

Five senior executives from top energy firms and two consultants are among those arrested in the sensational corporate espionage scandal in which classified documents were allegedly leaked. Twelve people have been arrested till Saturday.

Those arrested on Thursday were temporary multi-tasking staff in Shastri Bhawan and had been indulging in such activities for some time, using fake identities to enter the building.

According to Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ashok Chand, all these company executives were receivers of the stolen documents which have been recovered by police teams during raids from their establishments.

Saxena is Manager, corporate affairs, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL); Chandra is senior executive, Jubilant Energy; Anand is DGM, Reliance ADAG; Vinay is DGM, Essar and Naik is GM, Cairns India.
