Marching orders have literally been issued to the Delhi outlet of the famous multinational fast-food joint - Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) within weeks of its opening. The Delhi High Court has refused to stay the Municipal Corporation of Delhi's (MCD) order of closing the restaurant for lack of sanitation.

Meanwhile, the court has called for a hearing on November 24.
