Legal News Updates
In a relief to cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Supreme Court on Monday stayed criminal proceedings against him on a complaint that he deliberately attempted to outrage religious sentiments with a visual depiction of him as 'Lord Vishnu' in a business publication.
At the end of a brief hearing, a Bench of Justices P.C. Ghose and R.K. Agarwal also stayed a Karnataka High Court order refusing to quash the criminal proceedings against him in a Bengaluru court.
Clubbing Dhoni's petition with another on the same issue, the bench issued notice to social activist Jayakumar Hiremath, who had lodged the complaint.
