Supreme Court has stayed the gag order issued by Andhra Pradesh high court barring the media from reporting on the FIR filed in the Amaravati land scam case. 

The FIR filed by the state's Anti Corruption Bureau allegedly names the daughters of a sitting senior judge of the Supreme Court.

The YS Jaganmohan Reddy government had constituted SIT alleging massive irregularities during the previous government's tenure in the case concerning sale of land in Amaravati. 

TDP leaders Varla Ramaiah and Raja had moved the Andhra Pradesh HC challenging the formation of the SIT following which the court stayed the government orders setting up the SIT. 

It also barred media from reporting contents of the FIR. The state government then approached the Supreme Court against the high court order.
