The Supreme Court of India has stayed the order passed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court in a Financial Fraud case of Gurgaon .

The Order passed by the High Court restrained the Gurgaon Police from conducting investigation into the Financial Fraud matter, upon the issue raised by the accused over territorial jurisdiction where Haryana Police registered a Delhi case.

The Apex Court has ordered to stay all the further proceedings to be conducted in the High Court over the matter.

“Until further orders from this court, there shall be stay of the operation of the common impugned interim order dated August 13, 2021, passed by the High Court except to the extent of release of the accused and there shall be stay of all further proceedings in matter pending before the High Court,” the Supreme Court has ordered.

The Division Bench comprised Justice S Abdul Nazeer and Justice AS Bopana passed the Order into the Special Leave Petition (SLP) filed by the Haryana State against the three interim orders passed by the High Court.

The recent Order by the High Court dated August 13 was stayed by the Apex Court, which directed the Haryana Government not to take any coercive steps against the accused and the investigation against accused regarding fraud should also be suspended.

The FIR in this case was filed for non-payment of loan to complainant (PM Fincap Ltd) by the borrower Trusts i.e. Maharaji Educational Trust and Santosh Trust.
