Don't know who leaked Radia tapes: Govt tells SC

August 23, 2012 13:28 IST

The government on Thursday filed a report in the Supreme Court saying it has been unable to find the source which leaked the tapes containing conversation between corporate lobbyist Niira Radia and others including Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata.

"In a nutshell, the report says it is difficult to find by which source it was leaked," a bench comprising justices G S Singhvi and S J Mukhopadhaya said, after perusing the report filed in a sealed envelope.

The bench further said, "Regarding the source which leaked the tapes, they have been unable to find it."

The second report by the government on its probe into the leakage of the recorded conversation was filed during the hearing of the petition filed by Ratan Tata seeking inquiry into the incident which he alleged was in violation of his fundamental right to privacy.
