The Income Tax department has requested the Supreme Court to let it inspect documents seized by the CBI from the premises of Hindalco so as to enable it initiate proceedings against the Aditya Birla Group under the IT Act.

The department moved the court in the wake of its previous order restraining the CBI from sharing information relating to the probe into the coal blocks allocation case with any person or agency without the court’s permission.

In the application, the department sought permission to allow one of its officers to go through the documents collected by CBI while raiding the premises of Hindalco across the country.
