In a reprieve for President Pratibha Patil's brother G N Patil, the Bombay High Court on Saturday held that investigation into the murder of Congress leader Vishram Patil was just and fair.
Vishram's wife Rajni had moved the High Court in 2007, seeking to make G N Patil an accused in the murder case.
However, during the hearing CBI had told the High Court that there was no evidence against G N Patil.
The court on Saturday said, "we are unable to hold that investigation was unjust or unfair," the court need not interfere with it.
Vishram Patil was murdered in September 2005, his wife had alleged that it was a fallout of political rivalry with G N Patil.
