The defamation case was filed against the actor nearly two years back after he allegedly made some comments against Congress leaders.
The petition was filed by Kiran Kumar, an advocate and a Congress leader from Wanaparthy in 2008.
According to the advocate, Pawan Kalyan termed some Congress leaders as traitors in connection with a land dispute near Gandhi Bhavan.
Pawan Kalyan’s advocate sought the High Court’s intervention in striking down the case but the court rejected the petition.
Meanwhile, the munsif court ordered Pawan Kalyan to appear before the court on Monday. The actor failed to appear following which an NBW was issued against him.
