  • Industrialist Ratan Tata Friday contended in the Supreme Court that every document filed in the court could not be

    carried by media by deeming it being in public domain.


    "First of all this public domain theory is wrong. Simply that something is filed in the court is assumed to be in

    public domain," senior counsel Harish Salve, appearing for Tata, told a bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice

    Gopala Gowda.


    Tata has moved the apex court seeking to restrain media from publishing the transcripts of the tapes of the former

    corporate lobbyst Niira Radia's tapped phones.


    Radia's phones were under surveillance by the income tax department.


    Not questioning the government' right to tap the phones but its responsibility to keep the recordings secure, Salve

    said: "My privacy has to be protected. Government can't throw up its hands and say that I had tapped it and if it

    gets leaked, then I can't do anything about it."


    Alleging that it were the investigating agencies that were leaking the information, Salve said, "Truth is that

    investigating agencies use the media... it is very dangerous. Why were they leaked. Whom were they aimed to



    Contending that media was not above law, Salve said that he has no doubt that original leaks took place because of

    corporate rivalry.


    He said that media was not above law and had the option of seeking to access information through RTI and letting the

    government decide.
