Case Title: Maulikkumar Satishbhai Sheth vs Income Tax Officer, Assessment Unit
A division bench of Justice Bhargav D Karia and Justice Niral R Mehta of Gujarat High Court observed that it is imperative to safeguard the privacy of each individual while inquiring about any case against him or her.
“How can you visit a lady advocate’s house early morning and seize her and her family members’ devices. Isn’t this violating her privacy? You will have to clarify as to how and under what law could you raid her house like this,”
The bench made the said observation while dealing with the petition challenging the IT raid on against a lawyer.
