The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed an order passed by the Director of the Jim Corbett National Park allowing buses of private operators to ply within the core area of the Tiger reserve in Uttarakhand.

The Court stayed the implementation of the office letter issued by the director of the national park on December 23.
The interim order was passed in a writ petition filed by Advocate Gaurav Kumar Bansal.
