The E option actually made me chuckle. :-D D is the only logical option to me, but I'm curious about the thought processes of the few who selected a different one. It's always the people who go against the grain who are most curious to me.

Dear Manish
In this Sentence Correction and our issue is whether the taping and evidencing were done earlier than suspecting and charging. If the phrase 'having taped and used' points to the earlierness of the event, then we should be happy to use 'had.' If we doubt whether action one and two were ever done by the police, that debate will be part of critical reasoning

IMO OA is D

The lawyer suspected about police that
1) have illegally taped
2) used the information to find evidence

-> So we have to use 'of~'. A,B,C is out

Between D and E, D is correct.

In E, there is only 'they obtained'. Obtaining tape was happened before when lawyer suspected.
In D, however, I can see 'had obtained'. So D is more clear.
So I chose D.

You have not considered the case that "having" may cover "use" as well.

The lawyer suspected that police
1) have illegally taped
2) HAVE used the information to find evidence.

Thus "having taped and used" is alright, and option A, with your reasoning, cannot be eliminated.

Nonethless, the auxiliary verbal "having" cannot cover both "taped" and "used" because "having" is used to depict completion of an action before another action is taken up. If "having" covers both "taped" and "used", then there is no third action that followed the completion of these two events. "Having" can cover ONLY "taped", in which case, "using" is the following action.
