New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed the non-bailable warrants against DMDK leader Vijaykants and his wife Premalatha issued by a trial court in Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu.

Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman sought the list of defamation cases filed by the public prosecutors in Tamil Nadu on behalf of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa against her critics. 

The Tiruppur court had issued non-bailable warrants against the couple following their non-appearance before it in a defamation case in March.
