The alleged killer of British teenager Hannah Foster, Maninder Pal Singh Kohli moved the Supreme Court on Wednesday challenging his proposed extradition to Britain to stand trial for the murder and rape of Foster there.
Kohli's counsel Charanjit Singh said he was likely to apprise the bench of chief justice KG Balakrishnan on Thursday about the filing of the petition.
He said that he would request the court to hear the petition early and "give the requisite relief" to his client.
The Delhi High Court on July 6 had dismissed a petition by Kohli challenging his extradition to Britain ordered by a subordinate court.
Kohli is accused of raping and murdering Foster after kidnapping her on March 14, 2003 from a place near her home in Portswood, Southampton, where she had gone on a weekend picnic with her friends.
