New Delhi, (JPN/Bureau): Defending itself against allegations of tapping the telephone of Rajya Sabha member and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, Reliance Infocomm on Monday told the Supreme Court that it had carried out this exercise in “a bonafide manner.”

Submitting a 21-page affidavit, before a bench of justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly, the telecom company said, "It has acted in a bonafide manner and has followed the prescribed procedures."
Reliance said it has cooperated fully with the Delhi Police in the investigations and had acted with "perfect honesty and care and caution".
Its reaction came after the court, in the earlier hearing, pulled up the company and the government in the alleged illegal and unauthorised phone tapping of Amar Singh.

The former SP leader had moved a petition seeking a judicial inquiry into the "illegal" tapping of his telephone allegedly at the behest of his political rivals including the Congress party.
