Ray, while hearing a petition by former IPS officer Nazrul Islam on February 3, had annulled the promotion of five West Bengal IPS officers to the rank of Director General of Police (DGP).

While the CAT order was overturned by the Calcutta High Court, Mamata Banerjee-led government moved the High Court on March 25 against the CAT bench comprising Ray and PK Basu alleging it had passed "biased orders".

"I use this number to contact so many dignitaries including the CAT chairman. But of late whenever I call I hear a sound. It seems my conversations are being recorded. So I have written to the union home secretary," said Ray.

Ray is planning to approach the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

"Though I don't remember, but it seems my phone is being tapped ever since the CAT order (in Islam's case) and there is a likelihood the surveillance has increased after Monday when the case against me was filed,” said Ray.

I am discussing the matter with the CAT chairman. Once it is confirmed that my phone has been tapped, I will approach the CBI and lodge a formal police complaint," he added.
