The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay the Madras High Court order for a CBI probe against police officials for firing during the anti-Sterlite protests in Tamil Nadu in May this year. 


A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S K Kaul issued notice to the CBI on the petition filed by the Tamil Nadu government challenging the High Court order.


The bench said, court has to see the other side, when senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi sought a stay of the high court's order.


The police firing had taken place in Tuticorin district during the anti-Sterlite protests that claimed 13 lives on May 22, 2018.


The high court ordered that FIRs be registered against top police officials and officials of the civil administration.
