"The story contains outrageous, baseless and defamatory allegations. There is no truth in the story whatsoever. The allegations that telephones were bugged at the instance of the Home Minister or the Ministry of Home Affairs is an outrageous lie," it said.

The statement said that the government reserves its right to take appropriate action against the offending newspaper.

Government would like to caution other newspapers and media not to reproduce or repeat the aforesaid story, it said.
