They, however, changed tactic to allow them to move the High Court after the Court appeared agreeing to Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta's submission that any interim protection to Karti would set a wrong precedent in 50 similar cases involving "ordinary criminals" that were pending before the court.

Karti's counsel has also alleged that he was kept in a separate room during his custody remand of the CBI starting from February 28 to March 6. The lawyers of Karti has argued that the Enforcement Directorate has no jurisdiction can not have any sort of investigation not related to the allegations in the FIR lodged by the Central Bureau of Investigation or CBI.
