The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu asked the petitioner to first make an appropriate representation before an authority in support of his plea.
The court said that the petitioner can approach it only after making a representation and getting response to it.
“You (the petitioner) can come to us only after the authorities have responded to your representation or choose not to response,” the court said.
Having said this, the court dismissed the plea as withdrawn.
