    Delhi HC bans publication of purported Abhishek Manu Singhvi sex tape

    The Delhi High Court has ex parte ordered three media houses from publishing a digital video allegedly depicting “sexual acts” of senior advocate and Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi, which the politician alleges is fake and an attempt by his former driver at extortion.

    Mukesh Kumar Lal was restrained by Justice Reva Khetrapal on 13 April from “publishing, broadcasting, disseminating or distributing in any form or manner the contents of any alleged CD or any other material as described in the plaint in relation to the plaintiff No. 2”, Singhvi, reported the Indian Express.

    The first plaintiff, whose name is the only petitioner listed on the Delhi high court’s causelist, is partner Abhimanyu Bhandari, who is a founding partner of Axon Partners with Singhvi and Singhvi’s son.

    The order was passed ex parte against Aaj Tak, Headlines Today and The India Today Group but the order was not available at the time of going to press.

    Singhvi is represented by advocate Sangeeta Sharma.

    According to the Express, the court found that the “...plaintiffs have made out a prima facie case for grant of an ex-parte ad interim injunction in their favour. The balance of convenience is also tilted in favour of the plaintiffs and against the defendants” and that “irreparable injury is likely to be caused to the reputation and goodwill of plaintiff 2 (Abhishek Manu Singhvi) in case the defendants are not restrained from disseminating the information allegedly in their possession in the form of CD.”

    “Publicity to the content of such a CD would only be for sensational and salacious purpose and would amount to a gross and irreparable violation of an individual’s privacy and would be per se defamatory,” Singhvi had submitted to the court according to Firstpost.

    IANS reported that after Singhvi had filed a police complaint on 23 March, and on 24 March Singhvi received “calls from several senior political leaders about the possession of the CD with journalists”, IANS summarised the petition:

    According to Singhvi's petition, the SMSes referred to a CD, which Lal said that he would distribute to all media houses, severely embarrassing and defaming the name and reputation of Singhvi.

    The petition further stated: “Lal said that he needs a very large amount of money or else he will start spreading false rumours and allegations against Singhvi, including false statement regarding his moral character and will go to the media and distribute a CD which allegedly depicts alleged sexual acts made allegedly by Abishek Manu Singhvi and will not hesitate from making other false claim.” […]

    Singhvi claimed that such a CD either does not exist or if it does, it is clearly and obviously morphed, fabricated and forged.

    The Delhi high court case is Abhimanyu Bhandari & anr vs. Mukesh Kumar Lal & Ors (CS(OS) 978/2012). The next hearing is due on 21 May 2012 in Court number 24.

    On Twitter this morning the phrase “Abhishek Manu Singhvi” was “trending” in India – the term used to describe topics that are especially popular on the microblogging service.

    According to several Tweets, the video shows what purports to be Singhvi and a senior female lawyer.

    There are three factors which the court considers before giving any injunction 1.Prima facie case, 2.Balance of convenience, and 3.Irreparable loss
    and it's not difficult to prove these 3 factors in this type of case. But it doesn't mean that video CD is not genuine,lets see what happens next, Abhishek Manu Singhavi appears like a tharki to me lol :D :p

    Would you have the same stance if your sister/mother was in the sex tape and you wouldn't mind it being released in public domain ?

    the boss should have paid the police or thugs to eliminate the blackmailer without telling the actual reason.
