Government to revisit NTRO norms

New Delhi: The government will revisit the positioning of the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), an intelligence-gathering wing of the government, and may place it under the direct control of a ministry, home minister P. Chidambaram said in reply to a discussion on the phone tapping in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday.

Referring to a recent news article in a magazine that alleged that the phone conversations of four senior politicians including a Central minister had been tapped, Chidambaram said if there was any illegal phone interception, the government will get to the bottom of the matter.
