The matter was heard before the bench of Justice Rajani Dubey. 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 and the criminal case should be quashed.

His counsel argued in the court that it is necessary to take permission from the General Administration Department before the FIR as per relevant law. In the RTI it was revealed that the procedure had not been followed before taking action. Therefore, the FIR needs to be quashed.
