The execution of non-bailable warrant issued by a court in Shajapur town was stayed by vacation judge, Justice Subhda R Waghmare yesterday, Sudhanshu Maharaj's advocate Rajendra Singhvi told reporters here today.

The bench also ordered the lower court to send the record of the proceedings to the high court in this regard and also stayed the trial of the case till next hearing, he said.

An industrialist, Mahaveer Prasad Mansinghka has filed a complaint in the local court in Shajapur alleging that Sudhanshu Maharaj's 'Vishwa Jagriti Mission' to whom he had donated Rs 53 lakh for getting relaxation under section 80-G of the Income Tax Act was turned down by the department on the ground that the Mission had no such facility.

The department also imposed a penalty on Mansinghka in this regard following which he had filed a complaint in a local court in Shajapur alleging that the Mission was misleading the people on the issue.

Meanwhile, the Mission has issued an statement that Mansinghka has misled the court by recording false statements on the issue of section 80-G of the IT Act despite having full knowledge about the facts in this regard.
