Refused to consider the petition demanding instructions to constitute an expert committee.

A bench of Justices Bela M Trivedi and Pankaj Mithal refused to consider the petition filed by lawyer Vishal Tiwari. When the court did not agree to hear the petition, lawyer Tiwari withdrew the petition. The petitioner sought issuance of directions to continue the operation and implementation of the three new criminal laws.

There was no debate on the three criminal laws of the Supreme Court.
According to the petition, the three criminal laws were passed and enacted without any parliamentary debate, as most of the members were under suspension during the period.

The petition said, "Parliamentary debate is a fundamental part of democratic law making. Members in Parliament debate bills before voting on them. Because debates are public, they allow Members of Parliament (MPs) to speak to their constituents in the House. Provides an opportunity for ideas to be represented and voiced."
