SC stays criminal proceedings against MS Dhoni


New Delhi: Supreme Court on Monday stayed criminal proceedings against MS Dhoni for allegedly hurting religious sentiments for being portrayed as Lord Vishnu in a business magazine.

Earlier, Karnataka High Court had declined to stop the proceedings against India’s ODI skipper.

The complaint, filed by social activist Jayakumar Hiremath, had alleged that Dhoni was seen on the cover of a business magazine as Lord Vishnu, holding several things, including a shoe in his hands.

The apex court’s decision comes as a much-needed breather for the wicketkeeper-batsman who is currently preparing for India’s series against South Africa.
