In a statement, Flipkart said it had proceeded to file a writ petition before the Karnataka High Court seeking relief against the NCLT order dated October 24, 2019.
"The Hon'ble High Court considered this matter in exercise of its extraordinary writ jurisdiction and vide its order dated 25 October 2019 stayed the order dated 24 October 2019," it added.
The writ petition was again taken up for hearing by the Karnataka HC on October 31, where it directed continuation of the stay till the next date of hearing, it said.
