Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has stayed the summoning orders issued by a local court against Kurukshetra MP Raj Kumar Saini in an alleged case of promoting enmity between different groups. The next date of hearing has been fixed as November 28 by Justice Jitendra Chauhan.
A Kurukshetra court had ordered his presence on August 6 in connection with the case. In his petition before the High Court Single Bench headed by Justice Jitendra Chauhan, the MP Saini through counsel J S Bedi and Diya Sodhi had sought directions for quashing of Kurukshetra court orders.
The matter is pending before a lower Kurukshetra court following complaint filed by social activist Santosh Dahiya.
The complainant was seeking action against Saini under Section 153-A of the IPC dealing with allegations of promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language and acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony. Action was also sought under Section 153-B dealing with imputations and assertions prejudicial to national-integration.
