New Delhi: More audio tapes have surfaced in the snooping row allegedly involving Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. The website Gulail.com has released 40 new tapes in the case alleging that the scope of the snooping was not confined to just Gujarat.

The tapes show alleged conversations between whistleblower GL Singhal and Joint Commissioner of Crime in Ahmedabad AK Singh.

The tapes show senior telecom officials were also allegedly involved in the operations. The operation also claims that contrary to the BJP's claims, the girl being snooped upon did not know about the operation to track her.

Gulail said that it will not appear before the Gujarat government commission calling it malicious.

Gulail in partnership with another news portal Cobrapost had claimed on November 15 that Modi's close aide Amit Shah had ordered illegal surveillance of a woman in Gujarat at the behest of one "saheb".

They had released purported taped conversation between Shah and IPS officer GL Singhal to support their claim but said the authenticity of the tape could not be confirmed.

However, the father of the woman had told the National Commission of Women that his daughter does not want any probe into the issue as there was no encroachment of her privacy. "It is an earnest wish of my daughter that no further probe (in snooping issue) is necessary as being politically demanded," he had said in a letter to NCW and Gujarat State Commission for Women.
