A bench headed by Chief Justice of India, SA Bobde, said the court cannot entertain such a general prayer.

Deo Sudhi said that while a decision on sanction of prosecution had to be given within three months, the said case was pending for more than a year with the Delhi government.
The petitioner also insisted on laying down of guidelines in heinous cases and urged that the rule of law must be adhered to.
