The Bombay High Court today quashed a gag order issued by a Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Court that prohibited the media from reporting on the Sohrabuddin trial.

On November 29 last year, CBI judge SJ Sharma allowed an application made by defence counsel Wahab Khan to ban print and electronic media from publishing or reporting anything on the trial till the judgment is passed.

When the matter came up for hearing today, a single judge Bench of the High Court lifted the gag order, stating that the defence lawyers who approached the CBI court had neither relied on any provisions of law to push their claims, nor had they shown anything to substantiate the fact that their lives were in any danger.
