Supreme Court lifts gag order on Amar Singh tapes NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday lifted the gag order on publishing and telecasting the tapped phone conversations of former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh with top politicians and Bollywood stars. An apex court bench GS Singhvi and AK Ganguly vacated the interim order restraining the media, while dismissing the petition by Amar Singh. The bench also said there has been suppression of facts by Amar Singh in the case. Amar Singh may proceed against the telecom operator for illegally tapping his phone, the SC said. Amar Singh had filed the petition in 2006 after some of his telephonic conversations were illegally tapped and were in circulation. The leader had moved the apex court and got a restraint order against their publication in media.
