The petition had sought immediate restriction on the media from further telecasting or publishing the allegations till conclusion of the three-judge panel’s inquiry.

The allegations levelled by the former woman employee of the Supreme Court are being enquired into by a three-judge panel of the apex court which held its first proceeding on Friday last.
