Sheikh's family filed a petition against the FIR in the Ahmedabad High Court. The petition stated that Sheikh had been busy shooting on the day of the incident. On 30 August, Sanjeeda Sheikh was granted interim relief in the case as the Ahmedabad High Court waived the service of the notice.[30][31][32]
