IPS GP Singh through his advocate Ashutosh Pandey has presented a new petition in the High Court. Challenging the disproportionate assets case against him, he has said that the government has not followed the legal process before the FIR. In this case the criminal case should be quashed. His lawyer told the court that prior to an FIR under Section 17(a), it is necessary to take permission from the General Administration Department. Similarly, permission was to be obtained from the Central Personnel Department too, but it was not done.

He took information from the Central Personnel Department and the Ministry of Home Affairs under the Right to Information Act, then it was found that the procedure had not been followed before taking action. Therefore, the petition has sought quashing of the FIR. Also, as an interim relief, a stay was sought on the FIR till the matter is heard.
