“Nothing concrete” has emerged yet in the Delhi Police probe into the classified documents theft case, government said in Lok Sabha on Monday asserting that no one would be spared in it.

Responding to a question whether government would revisit the MoUs signed with companies involved in document theft case, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said “first we should let the investigation report come out, as nothing concrete (has emerged) yet. But, as I have already said, nobody will be spared.”

During the Question Hour, he also ruled out the possibility of forming a Joint Parliamentary Committee to probe the leaks as demanded by the Opposition, saying “there is no such proposal but competent authorities are on the job investigating the matter.”

Asked whether corporates and others involved will face action, Pradhan said the probe was on and the Crime Branch of Delhi Police would give a detailed report at an “appropriate time … Nobody will be spared.”

He said the staffs of his ministry have been asked to follow the guidelines issued by Union Home Ministry regarding safety of files and documents.

Pradhan also said more CCTV cameras have been installed in the Petroleum Ministry and new doors are being put up on the corridors, which would be closed after office hours and manned throughout by security guards. Additional almirahs and locks have also been provided for safe-keeping of documents.

The ministry has also restricted issuance of MHA-cleared entry passes for the ministry, based in Shastri Bhawan.
