A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India D. Y. Chandrachud, on an urgent mentioning by the Uttar Pradesh government, immediately stayed the Allahabad High Court order to initiate contempt action against the senior civil servants.

The court is likely to list the case on April 21. Meanwhile, it directed its registry to communicate the order to the Allahabad High Court and the authorities concerned without any delay. Additional Solicitor General K. M. Nataraj appeared for the State.
