Supreme Court dismissed the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by the Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) demanding further probe in the Haren Pandya murder case. Haren Pandya, former Home Minister of Gujarat was murdered in 2003 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, when he was sitting in his car after a morning walk in the Law Garden area in Ahmedabad. The bench comprising of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Vineet Saran observed that the PIL lacked bonafide, and was motivated by extraneous reasons.

We are not happy the way in which the writ petition has been filed. It has been filed acting obviously in conjunction with the accused persons in the case as the counsel for accused has admittedly supplied the documents to the petitioner and had consultations” observed Justice Arun Mishra in the Judgment.
