Mumbai cyber police approached a special court on Tuesday seeking permission to question jailed state minister Nawab Malik in a case related to alleged illegal tapping of phones and leak of documents related to police transfers.

IPS officer Rashmi Shukla, now on central deputation, has faced allegations of tapping phones illegally and leaking a confidential report on alleged corruption in police transfers when she headed the state intelligence department.

Malik, an NCP leader, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on February 23 in a money laundering probe linked to the activities of fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim and his aides. He is currently in judicial custody.

The cyber police moved the application through special public prosecutor Ajay Missar before special judge for Prevention of Money Laundering Act cases R N Rokade.

It was alleged that Malik had the same set of documents which Shukla allegedly leaked, so the cyber police want permission to question him, said prosecution.

The application will be heard in due course of time.
