The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed the execution of a non-bailable warrant issued against BJP leader Subramanian Swamy by an Assam court for allegedly delivering a hate speech at a university there. A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi also issued a notice to the Centre on his plea, challenging constitutional validity of certain penal provisions pertaining to hate speech.

The bench asked Swamy to move the high court with his plea to drop charges for allegedly delivering hate speech. Swamy had challenged the order of the trial court, which had issued the warrant against him for failing to appear before it in the case.
