CD row: Singhvi out of Congress briefings



New Delhi: Amid reports about a CD involving him, Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi has kept away from party briefings this week.

"At this moment, we can only say this much that he was not available for briefing on Monday", Congress sources said when asked about reports that he was taken off the roster of media briefings in the wake of controversy surrounding him.

Singhvi, who briefs the media formally every week on Monday, said he would request that the speculation over him should stop.

"On Monday morning itself, I had informed the party office that I was indisposed," he said.

The Delhi High Court has recently restrained a media house from publishing, telecasting and broadcasting the contents of a CD pertaining to Singhvi, who is also a leading advocate.

Singhvi has alleged that the CD was "forged, concocted, morphed and fabricated". Any move to telecast the alleged CD would infringe the right to reputation of Singhvi, the plea to the High Court had said.
