In a major setback to the Congress government of Himachal Pradesh, a Shimla court on Thursday acquitted former DGP I D Bhandari in the controversial phone tapping case that rocked the state in 2013.
” I am feeling relieved and got justice after three years after facing a media trial. I would follow the legal route against those responsible for hatching the conspiracy,” I D Bhandari said.
The irony of the case was that the officer was charge sheeted just four days before his retirement.He was suspended later.
Bhandari hails from Ghumarwin area of Bilaspur district and served as DGP during Prem Kumar Dhumal regime.
