The Supreme Court (SC) on Sunday upheld a High Court order staying the proceedings of a case against actress Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act. 

A five-member Appellate Division bench of the SC, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order rejecting a petition filed by the state challenging the HC order. 

Earlier on November 20, the High Court stayed the case proceedings. The bench of Justice Md Rezaul Haque and Justice Bhishmadev Chakrabortty passed the order after hearing an appeal seeking cancellation of the charge-framing in the case.  

Later, a petition was filed by the state challenging the HC order. 

Lawyer AF Hasan Arif along with Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua stood for the petition in the court while Deputy Attorney General Bishwajit Debnath for the state.
