Dhoni had previously been asked to appear before a court in Anantpur town of Andhra Pradesh on February 25 regarding case filed against him for allegedly 'denigrating' Hindu God Lord Vishnu on a magazine cover page.
     
"Mahendra Singh Dhoni has utmost respect for the judiciary but the fact of the matter is that he has personally never received any summons with respect to the present case; therefore the order appears to be erroneous," Dhoni's lawyer Chopra had said in a statement issued by Rhiti Sports, the company managing Dhoni.
     
"Even as such, proceedings in a similar matter pending before the Hon'ble District Court of Bengaluru, Kartanaka has already been stayed by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India. In this matter, accordingly we will approach the courts and seek appropriate directions thereto," he had further pressed.
     
The complaint, filed by local activists had alleged that Dhoni was seen on the cover of a business magazine as Lord Vishnu holding several things including a shoe in his hands.
