Former secondary education minister Rangnath Mishra's petition challenging the arrest warrant issued against him was dismissed by Supreme Court on Friday.
The petition was heard by a bench comprising Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and Justices Surinder Singh Nijjar and J Chelameswar.
Standing counsel for UP government Ravi Prakash Mehrotra said the court dismissed the petition with the observation that the petitioner should approach the high court. Mishra's counsel Mukul Rohatgi said they withdrew the petition and will now file it before the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court.
Earlier, Mishra had filed a petition in Supreme Court seeking quashing of proceedings against him by the UP Police, which was also dismissed as withdrawn on Monday.
