The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed a Tripura High Court order that had sought a sealed cover report on the “Z plus” security provided to industrialist Mukesh Ambani and other VIP security provided to his wife and family members.

A bench of Justice Surya Kant and Justice J.B. Pardiwala granted the interim relief after the Union government rushed to the top court challenging the June 21 impugned order passed by the state high court on a PIL filed by a “social activist” Bikash Saha, who had questioned the security cover provided to the industrialist and his family.

“Issue notice, returnable on 22.07.2022. Meanwhile implementation of the orders dated 31.05.2022 and 21.06.2022 passed by the High Court of Tripura shall remain stayed,” the bench said in a terse order while seeking the response of the PIL petitioner before the high court.

The high court had earlier asked the Union government to place before it details and reasons for the “Z plus” security cover provided to Mukesh Ambani and “Y plus” security provided to his wife Neeta Ambani and their children.

It had also asked the ministry of home affairs (MHA) to depute a senior officer to be personally present before it when the matter is taken up again.
