Shares of Reliance Industries (RIL) today witnessed selling pressure, falling over three per cent, after Delhi police had yesterday arrested a RIL staffer in connection with the leaking of classified documents from the Petroleum Ministry.

The stock went down by 3.23 per cent to Rs 872.20 in morning trade on the BSE. On the NSE, it fell by 3.4 per cent to Rs 871.30.

The scrip was the biggest loser among the blue-chips on both Sensex and Nifty.

Cracking down on a suspected case of corporate espionage, the Delhi police had yesterday arrested two Oil Ministry officials, one RIL staffer and two other middlemen, for allegedly leaking classified government documents to energy companies for money.

Raids were conducted at several establishments, including a prominent building in Connaught Place in New Delhi, which houses the offices of a leading private petroleum firm, believed to be RIL.

Reliance Industries said it has been brought to its notice that one of its staffer has been detained by the law enforcement authorities.
