Ratan Tata
New Delhi, Nov 29: Following the leaked tape controversy, TATA Group chairman Ratan Tata will appeal to Supreme Court on Monday, Nov 29 seeking action against persons responsible for the leakage and unauthorised publication of tapes.

Ratan Tata alleged that the publication of the tapes of his conversation with corporate lobbyist Nira Radia was a violation of his right to privacy.

During an interview with NDTV on Friday, Nov 26, Ratan Tata said that taped conversation should be used only for prosecution purposes alone. He added that instead of using for the investigation, tapes were made available to media.

In the interview, he also added that the tape controversy was created to smokescreen around the real issue behind the 2G scam.

Tata's plea may be filed under article 32 of the constitution, which empowers a citizen to move SC alleging violation of his/her fundamental rights.

The SC had declared right to privacy as a part of right to life, the most important of the fundamental rights of a citizen.
