A lawyer who allegedly misled police officials into believing that a Madras High Court eviction order of December 3 has revoked to stall eviction proceedings has drawn contempt proceedings after the same was brought to the Court's notice.

Stating that the Court is inclined to initiate suo motu contempt, Justice P Velmurugan on December 21 posted the matter before the Chief Justice for appropriate orders.

However, it may be noted that the case status on the e-Courts page has reflected that the December 3 order was revoked on December 4.
