A three judge bench headed by Chief Justice YK Sabharwal passed the order on a petition filed by Amar Singh complaining about illegal tapping of his telephone and the circulation of the contents among media organisations.

The bench made it clear that the media would not make them public until the matter is heard in the court and a decision is taken.
