NEW DELHI: Industrialist Ratan Tata Thursday urged the Supreme Court to direct the central government to provide him the confidential report on the leakage of corporate lobbyist Niira Radia's taped conversations.

He asked for the report of the probe by the income tax director general so that he could implead the telecom service providers as necessary parties in the case.

On the plea made by senior counsel Mukul Rohtagi appearing for Tata, an apex court bench headed by Justice G.S. Singhvi asked additional solicitor general Harin Rawal if he had any reservation in sharing the confidential report with the petitioner.

Rawal told the court that if Tata make an application on this, the central government will indicate the portions of the report on which it will claim privilege.

The court then adjourned the hearing for two weeks to enable the industrialist to make an application for seeking the report.
