New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear the issue of unsealing a Taj group resort located in the Gir forest sanctuary in Gujarat.

In April, a two-judge bench of the Gujarat high court refused to intervene in a sealing notice given to the Taj group resort by the forest department for not having the requisite no-objection certificate.

A bench headed by chief justice H.L. Dattu said the issue of unsealing could not be considered by them without hearing the other side, and issued notice to state authorities.
