Majithia had approached the HC on May 23 stating that "there has been no credible and legally admissible material against him." "The case is blatantly political in nature and has been registered after an inordinate delay with the purpose of using the same as an election plank in the assembly polls of February 2022,” he had further argued.

However, when the matter came up for hearing on Monday, the court refused to take up the case and and mentioned that "the hearing of the case will start afresh".
