KV filed a Special Leave Petition in August 2012, in the matter of Ajay Dubey vs. UoI and others (commonly known as the tiger tourism case). The petition relates to the need of following due procedures including legally mandated gram sabha consultations while notifying buffer zones of tiger reserves. 

KV is now planning to extend the intervention to cover matters of demarcation of tiger reserves as a whole, need for a more consultative process with engagement of local communities, guidelines on co-existence and detailed guidelines on management and conservation of Tiger Reserves.
