The Uttarakhand High Court has stayed the arrest of Bollywood producer-director Rakesh Roshan till 19 September, an official said on 31 August.
Dehradun-based writer Roop Kumar Sonkar had lodged an FIR against Roshan for copyright violation and accused him of using some parts of his novel in his movie Krrish 3 which stars his actor son Hrithik Roshan.
Roshan had requested the court to quash the FIR, which Justice UC Dhyani refused to do, asking the police not to act against him till 19 September.
The Krrish series maker said the script was his original and that there was no copyright violation.
