SC holds in camera proceedings in Radia case

NEW DELHI, Aug 29, 2013, DH News Service 0:37 IST
The Supreme Court on Thursday held a rare, two-hour long in camera proceeding in the Niira Radia tapes case in which classified information was shared.

After obtaining fresh information, a bench of Justices G S Singhvi and V Gopala Gowda said, “Some more dimensions have come to light.”

The court provided the information to Advocate Parshant Bhushan, representing an NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation, after he appeared before the hearing seeking the reason for adjourning the case to October 1.

The in-camera proceeding began at 10.30 am and continued till 12.30 pm. Only two additional solicitor generals, representing the government and the CBI, along with a few officers, were allowed inside the court room. The bench had on August 27 decided to hold in-camera proceedings in the case after a submission by senior Advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Ratan Tata.

He had said that the government counsel felt stiff to make submissions in open court proceedings in view of the sensitive nature of the information revealed in the transcription of about 5800 intercepted communications of Niira Radia with prominent people.
