"We had made a plea to the apex court to stay the scrapping and give a chance to other state governments to 'adopt' it and revive it. Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan has ordered a status quo on the entire matter till the next hearing. The court has also issued notices to the defence ministry and other concerned parties, petitioner-activist Kiran Paigankar told IANS."
Mumbai/New Delhi, May 5 - The country's first aircraft carrier INS Vikrant, headed for the scrapyard, got another breather Monday when the Supreme Court blocked its ignominy, an activist said.

We had made a plea to the apex court to stay the scrapping and give a chance to other state governments to 'adopt' it and revive it. Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan has ordered a status quo on the entire matter till the next hearing. The court has also issued notices to the defence ministry and other concerned parties, petitioner-activist Kiran Paigankar told IANS.

The ship was due for going to the scrapyard May 17 after it was sold through an e-auction to Mumbai-based IB Commercials Pvt. Ltd.
