A PIL filed by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) through advocate Prashant Bhushan, also a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has sought a revival of all cases in which action was initiated by Chaturvedi before he was removed by then union health minister Harsh Vardhan in August last year from his post as chief vigilance officer of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
