NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today refused to stay the Delhi High Court’s interim order banning the publication and sale of a book purportedly on the life of yoga guru Ramdev, which he claimed contained defamatory contents.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra did not grant any interim relief to the publisher Juggernaut Books, rather it asked the Delhi High Court to decide the petition by September-end.
The petition by the publisher challenges a trial court order banning the publication and sale of the book titled ‘Godman To Tycoon’.
The publisher had knocked the doors of the Apex Court after the High Court, in its interim order, had refused to lift the ban on sale and publication of the book imposed by the trial court. (AGENCIES)
