A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan agreed with Tulsi.
“We direct all news channels … to immediately stop telecasting the offending news item,” the court ruled.
Bedi, a small-time actress, was extradited from Portugal along with Mumbai underworld figure Abu Salem in 2005 in a high profile passport forgery case linked to India’s worst bomb attacks.Salem is accused of involvement in the Mumbai bomb blasts in 1993 which killed 257 people and is currently facing trial over the attacks. Police say the pair fled the country soon after the blasts.
Bedi was acquitted by a court in Bhopal because the police did not produce adequate witnesses against her. The nude pictures are said to have been taken while she was in jail there.
