Media restrained from reporting allegations against ex-SC judge

The Delhi High Court Thursday restrained the media from publishing or telecasting the allegations levelled against former Supreme Court judge Swatanter Kumar by a former law intern, who has accused him of sexual harassment.

Justice Manmohan, in an interim order, also restrained the telecast or print of photographs of Justice Kumar, and directed that photographs of his be removed from internet too.

Media organisations were directed to limit reporting to court orders only.

The court has posted the matter for hearing Feb 24.

Kumar filed a defamation case against one national daily, two TV news channels and the former intern. While the intern made allegations of sexual harassment, the media organisations reported the allegations.
