The Bench comprised Justices K.K.Sasidharan and R. Subramanian. The Bench in its Order said: "In view of the stand taken by the State government that the conviction of the appellant was also for the offences under various Central enactments and not only in respect of laws with reference to which the Legislature of the State has power to make laws and in view of the pendency of the substantial writ petition before Supreme Court, we are not in a position to direct the Governor to consider the representation by exercising the power under Article 161 of the Constitution."
