Important information, found in the electronic equipment recovered from the women involved in the case, was deleted during the inquiry.

The names of some people who were associated with those women were never brought to light.

For that reason, the Income Tax Department has never given correct information about the case, despite an order of the high court.

According to sources in I-T and ED, the high court had ordered that the SIT should share information about the episode with the tax officials, but it did not happen.

The audio and video clips, laptops, mobile phones and electronic equipment recovered from the women were not given to the income-tax department, sources said.

Many people had links with Shweta Swapni Jain, Shweta Vijay Jain, Barkha Soni Bhatnagar and Arati Rai, sources said.

Apart from politicians, many bureaucrats were associated with the honey trap episode.

SIT has mentioned the names of only six IAS officers and a politician in its reports, but their number may be very high, sources said.
