Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday
stayed the summons issued by a Barabanki court against
Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt for his alleged indecent remarks
against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.

The order was passed by the Lucknow bench on a
petition filed by Dutt through his counsel I B Singh.
Justice S N Shukla asked the government to file a
counter affidavit within two weeks.

A court in Barabanki had issued summons against Dutt
in January last year for his alleged indecent remarks against
Mayawati during an election rally.

Dutt, 51, who was then national general secretary of
Samajwadi Party, was addressing the rally in support of the
party candidate.
