The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the proceedings initiated by the Uttar Pradesh (UP) Legislative Assembly on a privilege notice against editorial management and journalists of two channels belonging to TV Today group in connection with a sting operation on Muzaffarnagar riots in September 2013.

"The proceedings against petitioners by the UP Legislative Assembly shall remain stayed," a Bench of justices J S Khehar and C Nagappan said and asked UP government and its legislative assembly to file their response within four weeks on the petition by the channel and its staffers.
