A bench of Justices GS Sistani and PS Teji, who did not issue notice in the matter, has said that it needs to hear the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), the CBI and the Delhi Police on the plea.

The court has fixed the matter for hearing on 20 July. Swamy has alleged that "inordinate delay" has been caused in the investigation "which is a blot on the justice system".

Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a five-star hotel in south Delhi here on the night of 17 January, 2014.
