New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday dismissed a plea seeking registration of a case against Attorney General GE Vahanvati, Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj and Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan for "shielding" Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and his family in a disproportionate assets case.

Special CBI judge Talwant Singh dismissed the petition of Vishwanath Chaturvedi who had sought direction from the court to register an FIR to initiate a "fair and impartial probe" into all the offences chronicled in his complaint against the people, including Vahanvati. Chaturvedi filed the petition on Monday.
