The petutiuon filed by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation said that a fresh probe was needed into the matter in view of "some startling information that has recently come to light and has been extensively reported by the media regarding Haren Pandya's murder, information which was never investigated into by the investigating agency, the CBI".

The petition also cited a witness in the Sohrabbudin Sheikh encounter case who had told a Mumbai court that the Pandya murder was a contract killing involving a senior IPS officer.
