Central vigilance commissioner PJ Thomas may file a review petition against the Supreme Court's judgement of striking down his appointment as India's anti-corruption watchdog illegal, media reports said on Friday.

His lawyer told TV channels that Thomas may file a review petition after the Supreme Court on Thursday said his appointment as CVC was illegal.

A three-judges bench headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia ruled that the recommendation of a high-powered committee (HPC) headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to appoint Thomas as CVC despite a corruption case pending against him in a trial court in Kerala was arbitrary and illegal.
