Justice P V Sanjay Kumar of the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday stayed registration of a case against directors of Jagati Publications on a defamation complaint lodged by TDP MLA Dhulipala Narendra.

The Telugu Desam MLA lodged a complaint against the directors of the publication house for certain news reports in Sakshi media for alleged involvement of his family members.

K Ramachandra Murthy and four others moved a petition before the High Court challenging the action of the police and seeking to declare the action of the police as illegal.
