and two other witnesses seeking quashing of the charge sheet
against him came up before Justice Keshav Narayan, he stayed
further proceedings in the case.

They had also filed petition challenging a local
magistrate order refusing to record their statements on an
application which they had filed before stating the "complaint
was concocted and they had never filed any complaint".

further proceedings in the case.

Kengeri police against 13 persons including Zameer Ahmed on
the basis of a complaint lodged October 30 last year by a
merchant alleging that he was robbed of Rs 50 lakh cash.
