The plea was mentioned before a bench of Justices BD Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva who allowed the petition to be heard.
Advocate Sonia Mathur, appearing for CBI, told the court, "The trial court's order should be stayed because the investigation is on. We really need the documents."
Mathur submitted that CBI cannot give documents to somebody who is not related to the case.
She contended, "Witnesses are yet to be examined in the case, so, the documents are necessary for us." The court then listed the matter for hearing today.

Court asks CBI to return some seized raid documents to Delhi government

A Special Court had yesterday directed the CBI to return some documents seized by it during the raids at Kumar's office on December 15 last year while disposing of an application filed by the Delhi government seeking release of the same.
In his order, Special Judge Ajay Kumar Jain had made stern observations on the manner in which searches were carried out and documents were seized.
The Judge had said there appears a deviation in the present case as CBI without conducting preliminary inquiry straight away registered the regular case on oral information.
