NSCS breach: Mukesh Saini sent to five-day police custody

Indraprasth, July 7 - Probe into the National Security
Council Secretariat breach case is accelerating with a
Delhi court today allowing the police five days' custody
of former NSCS Information Security Specialist Mukesh
Saini to take him to Mumbai to throw light on the
workings of some computer software allegedly used for
leaking crucial data.

The Delhi Police Special Cell, which is investigating the
case, produced Saini before Additional Chief Metropolitan
Magistrate Kanwaljeet Arora, who heard the case in an in-
camera proceeding.

"We are personally not opposed to the five-day custody
period granted by the court. We have assured our full co-
operation in the investigation and my client would be
helping the police verify certain computer hardware in
Mumbai," defence counsel R S Goswami told the media.

Saini, who had suddenly decided to quit NSCS and join
Microsoft (India) two months ago, was arrested yesterday
and booked under Section 120-B of IPC (criminal
conspiracy) and certain provisions of the Official
Secrets Act.

Regarding the allegations against the accused, Goswami
said that police had arrested him merely on a dislcoure
statement made by S S Paul, who is already under arrest,
and as yet the probe has not produced any positive
evidence against the former NSCS staffer.

A former co-ordinator of the Indo-US Cyber Secuirty
Forum, Saini had represented the country in several high
profile meetings.

He is alleged to have introduced US diplomat Rosanna
Minchew, who managed to flee the country soon after the
controversy came to light, to some of her future
"contacts" like Paul.

An insider in many sensitive projects during his NSCS
years, Saini had played an important role in cyber
security issues and the cell he had headed came under
National Security Advisor M K Narayanan.
