New Delhi: P J Thomas may consider filing a review petition in the Supreme Court which today quashed his appointment as CVC, his counsel indicated on Thursday night.

Dismissing reports that Thomas has resigned, his counsel Wills Mathews said he would go through the judgement and consider "whether to resign or to file a review petition".

Speaking to PTI, the counsel claimed Thomas has not yet gone through the judgement and would take a decision only after perusing it.

"I just talked to him. He was prepared to resign long back but at that time there was a legal opinion that he should not resign. So he continued," the counsel claimed.

Citing the provisions in the CVC Act, Mathews said he can be removed only by the President or alternatively he can resign.
