Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty on Monday moved Supreme Court seeking a stay on the criminal proceedings initiated against her in various police stations in Richard Gere kiss row. A bench headed by Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan listed the matter for hearing on Tuesday. The actress had sought quashing of criminal cases registered against her at Jodhpur, Ghaziabad and Munawar (Halwar) police stations.

Hollywood star Richard Gere's kiss on Shilpa's cheeks during an AIDS awareness programme in the Capital last month had evoked strong protests in several cities.
