The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to interfere into an Andhra Pradesh high court's order which quashed criminal proceedings against TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu for allegedly cheating people in his state by changing his stand on formation of Telangana.

A bench of justice SS Nijjar and justice Ranjana Prakash Desai dismissed a Hyderabad lawyer's appeal against the high court's order.

The police had registered a case against Naidu on a lower court's direction on athe advocate's complaint that the leader had cheated the people of Telangana as he had promised in his party's election manifesto that he would support the formation of a separate state but had changed his stance after the polls.

Naidu had then approached the high court for quashing of the proceedings against him and the judge allowed his plea.
