A local court on Friday stayed contempt proceedings ordered by a subordinate court against Superintendent of Police and ASP of Hisar for not taking action against an official accused of cancelling an FIR against MNS leader Raj Thackeray in a sedition case. On a petition filed by lawyer Rajat Kalsan, Hansi court had ordered the SHO (Hansi city) to lodge FIR against Thackeray under sections 124 A (sedition), 153 (provocation with intent to cause riot) and 153 A (promoting enmity between classes) IPC on September 5, for spreading hatred against north Indians and Biharis. The FIR, however, was later cancelled by police on October 4, which said the case was beyond its jurisdiction. The petitioner brought this to the notice of the court. Taking a serious view, Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate Ashwani Mehta on Thursday issued contempt notices to SP and ASP for October 27.
Additional District and Sessions Judge Ritu Tagore, however, awarded an interim stay on an appeal filed.
