CM's website hacking: State Police to sent ‘Letter of Rogatory’

The State police are planning to sent a ‘Letter of Rogatory’, a formal request by a Court to the Interpol, to get certain details pertaining to the Chief Minister's website hacking case.

Though the State police had earlier sent a request to the Interpol Wing attached to the CBI seeking the details through their counterparts in the US, Russia and China, they refused to had over the requests for want of a ‘Letter of rogatory’.

They have however preserved the electronic evidence including log files required by the State Police to crack the case.

The State Police are concerned that this would delay the investigation. The State Police would prepare the draft ‘letter of rogatory’ and send it to the Interpol wing of CBI who will forward it to the External Affairs Ministry.

The letters would be later produced before the Chief Judicial Magistrate and letter would be forwarded through the court.

It may be recalled that the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau had initiated a ‘letter of rogatory’ for collecting certain details from a French company involved in the Brahmapuram power plant corruption case.

Chief Minister's website ‘www.keralacm.gov.in’ was hacked and inserted objectionable contents. The police had found that the site was hacked from Internet Protocol addressed located in the US, Russia and China following the help of Interpol was sought.
