1. We have heard the learned counsel for the parties. An application dated 3rd September, 2018 was filed praying for inspection of documents on the ground that it will have a material bearing for the purpose of filing the reply to the show cause notice. The said application was rejected by a communication dated 10th September, 2018 passed by National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange Ltd. The contention of the appellant is, that these documents are necessary for the purpose of filing an appropriate reply to the show cause notice.
2. Having heard the learned counsel for the parties and having perused the list of documents so required for inspection we are of the opinion that the documents sought for is nothing but a roving and fishing enquiry. We accordingly do not find any merit in the submission of the learned counsel for the appellant that these documents are essential for the purpose of filing an appropriate reply.
3. However, we are of the opinion that if any document is relied by the respondent while disposing of the matter such document should
