Gandhinagar : The Gujarat Government on Monday announced the setting up of a two-man inquiry commission to probe the ‘snoopgate’ controversy involving the alleged illegal surveillance of a woman architect and a senior IAS officer under orders of the then minister of state for Home Amit Shah.
Gujarat Government Spokesperson Nitin Patel said that retired High Court Judge Justice Shugna Bhatt would head the 2-member committee; former Additional Chief Secretary (Home) KC Kapoor will be the other member of the commission.
It will submit its report in the next three months.
The Narendra Modi government in Gujarat has been in the throes of a mounting controversy over the illegal surveillance, allegedly under orders of Shah at the behest of Chief Minister Modi.
The matter came into public domain after two web sites released taped transcripts of conversations between former IPS officer GS Singhal and former MoS (Home) Amit Shah concerning the surveillance.
