    CBI officials probing the 2G spectrum scandal suspect their mobile phones might be under surveillance by the very mobile phone companies they are probing.

    They believe that the telecom companies have an obvious interest in listening to their conversations and reading their messages.

    So, the 2G probe team of the CBI’s anti-corruption branch has put up a request for 16 new “Blackberry mobile phones”.

    The CBI feels that two services of Blackberry —Messenger and Enterprise Server Services — cannot be intercepted by any mobile phone service provider.
    Ironic that India's intel community recognizes the need for privacy and security, while the Home Minister is ready to pull the plug on any service that provides said security.

    Haha!! This is gold!

    Would love to see them granted the BES & BlackBerry's only to get a memo saying we are shutting down your service because we can't listen into BES devices
