The petition had also sought the high court's intervention to get the five fishermen -- Emerson, Agastas, Wilson, Prasath and Langlet -- transferred to the Madurai central prison in accordance with a treaty between the two nations.
When the petition filed by Virudhunagar-based advocate S M Anandamurugan came up for hearing, the division bench of justices V Dhanapalan and V M Velumani said the matter could not be filed in the nature of a petition.
Following it, the petitioner's side expressed willingness to withdraw the petition.
