Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati on Monday filed a petition in the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court seeking stay on her possible arrest in a disproportionate assets case.

The petition also seeks quashing of the first information report against her by the Central Bureau of Investigation, the Bahujan Samaj Party leader's lawyer, Arun Kumar Sinha, said.

The petition is likely to come up for hearing on Tuesday.

The CBI had registered the case early this month after conducting raids at the BSP leader's residence in Delhi Meerut and Lucknow.

Mayawati also filed another petition seeking stay on her arrest and quashing of the FIR against her in the Taj Heritage Corridor case.

The CBI had registered the FIR against Mayawati and ten others, including her then principal secretary P L Punia, on October 5.
