New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has restrained a media house from publishing, telecasting and broadcasting the contents of a CD pertaining to Congress leader and a leading advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

"Till the next hearing, the defendants (the media house), their agents and all others acting for and/or on their behalf are restrained from publishing, broadcasting and disseminating or distributing in any form or any manner the content of any alleged CD or any other material as described in the plaint," Justice Reva Khetrapal said in an order on a civil suit filed by Singhvi.

He had sought a restraint on the media group from making public the contents of the alleged CD. The court has also sought response by May 21 from Aaj Tak, Headlines Today and India Today and Singhvi's former driver, alleged mastermind behind the scandal.

HC restrains media house from airing Singhvi CD

The court restrained a media house from publishing, telecasting and broadcasting the contents of a CD pertaining to Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

"Irreparable injury is likely to be caused to the reputation and goodwill of Singhvi in case the defendants are not restrained. Accordingly, issue notice to defendants (one to four) which is returnable by May 21," it said.

Singhvi alleged that the CD was 'forged, concocted, morphed and fabricated'. Any move to telecast the alleged CD would infringe the right to reputation of Singhvi, the plea said.
