The journalist's lawyer had yesterday told the media that the high court apart from exempting her from personal appearance had also stayed the proceedings in the trial court.
However, the order made available to media today, indicated that Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva had not stayed the proceedings initiated by BJP spokesperson Tajinder Singh Bagga for the scribe's tweets regarding his appointment to the post.
The journalist, Swati Chaturvedi, was on May 17 summoned by the trial court as an accused in the defamation case and was asked to appear before it on July 12.
In her plea filed through advocate Pranav Sachdeva, Chaturvedi had challenged the summons as well as sought quashing of the criminal proceedings initiated against her by Bagga.
