With his former driver placing on record a written submission and a joint plea to get the matter settled,the Delhi High Court on Thursday agreed to dispose of the civil suit moved by Congress leader and leading advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi for restraining a media house from publishing,telecasting and broadcasting the contents of a CD.

Justice Reva Khetrapal passed a consent decree in the petition filed by Singhvi and his former colleague,Abhimanyu Bhandari,against the driver and a media house after perusing the driver’s statement.

In his statement,Singhvi’s former driver Mukesh Lal submitted that the matter between him and Singhvi stood “amicably settled” in view of his undertaking that since he fabricated the CD and posted it to the media house,the CD should not be used directly or indirectly by anyone and should be returned to him.

Justice Khetrapal,who had on April 13 passed an ex parte order restraining the media group and the driver from publishing,telecasting and broadcasting the contents of the CD,also recorded the statement of Mukesh,who was present in court,and took on record Singhvi’s application while deciding to decree the suit in terms of the undertaking given by the driver.

The counsel for the media group also moved a resolution they had no objection if the case was decreed in the appropriate terms.
