The Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the non-bailable warrant issued by the Allahabad High Court against Noida chief executive officer (CEO) officer Ritu Maheshwari for failing to appear before it in a contempt case, a day after it had refused to do so.
A bench presided by Chief Justice of India N V Ramana stayed the order after senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi mentioned it. The court will take up the plea for a detailed hearing Wednesday.
Rohatgi told the bench that Maheshwari had gone to the high court on May 5, the day she was asked to appear, but was late to reach. “This is a gross case where a lady officer appeared in Allahabad High Court, her lawyer was present and sought a pass over but the high court issued an order asking her to appear and in custody!” Rohatgi submitted.
