New Delhi: Supreme Court on Monday stayed proceedings against Congress leader, and Sr lawyer, Salman Khurshid in DPS Society trespass case.
A two-judge bench of the Apex Court, headed by Justice BR Gavai and also comprising Justice Vikram Nath granted an interim stay on proceedings against Khurshid in relation to the First Information Report (FIR) lodged at the Amar Colony Police Station in Delhi.
According to the FIR registered against Khurshid and two others, they have been accused by the DPS Society of trespassing into their office premises situated in south Delhi.
The Senior Adovcate was once the President of the DPS Society, and is an alumnus of DPS Mathura Road. In 2008, he was expelled from its membership for allegedly indulging in “anti-DPS activities” by critising the society’s fee collection policies.
The Apex court passed the order, after hearing an appeal filed by Khurshid, who moved the SC challenging against a June 2018 Delhi High Court’s ruling, that had refused to stay his expulsion.
Senior Advocate Sidharth Luthra appeared for Khurshid, before the Supreme Court and sought relief from it.
