CD row: Singhvi, ex-driver settle issue

New Delhi, Apr 19: Leading advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi and his former driver, accused of providing an alleged CD pertaining to the Congress leader to a media group, told Delhi High Court that they have amicably settled the matter between them.

Justice Reva Khetrapal passed a consent decree in the civil suit filed by Singhvi and a former colleague of his, Abhimanyu Bhandari, against the driver and a media house after the court was informed about the settlement between them.

Justice Khetrapal, who on April 13 had passed an ex-parte order restraining the media group and the driver from publishing, telecasting and broadcasting the contents of the CD, recorded the statement of Mukesh Lal, the former driver.

Counsel for Aaj Tak, Headlines Today and India Today, told the court that they will handover the alleged CD to the person who provided it to them. Singhvi's counsel told the court that in the light of the settlement arrived at between the parties he would withdraw the police complaint against Lal.
