A bench of Justices GS Sistani and Chander Shekhar also issued notice to Delhi Police and sought their stand by 1 August on Menon's plea which also said that the investigating agency should be directed not to supply Swamy the copy of the status report with regard to the ongoing probe into Pushkar's death.

The bench said it is not going to pass any restraint order and Menon's petition questioning the locus standi of Swamy will be decided after the parties are heard.

Senior advocate Vikas Pahwa has moved the court on behalf of Menon in a pending petition filed by Swamy seeking probe in the death of Pushkar.

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