Congress demands probe into Loya's death

Supreme Court to Hear Plea for Probe Into Judge Loya's Death Tomorrow

The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Maharashtra government seeking its reply on a petition seeking an independent probe into alleged mysterious death of Mumbai's Special CBI Judge B H Loya in Nagpur in December 2014.

"They (four judges) have mentioned there is a threat to democracy and it needs to be looked into carefully".

The Supreme Court on Friday called the death of CBI Special Court and Additional Sessions Judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya a "serious issue" and asked the Maharashtra government to produce all documents related to the case.

"We are filing an intervention with the Supreme Court to have this case heard by Bombay High Court, which is in charge of the subordinate judiciary of Maharashtra of which Judge Loya was a part", Abdi said.

Judge Loya's death has been oft discussed topic on the social media, as people demand a proper inquiry in the case and a balanced justice. That is something that should be investigated properly.

In comparison to the pensive Indian camp, South Africa seemed at ease as they went about practicing for the second Test. India have won just two Test matches on South African soil in 25 years of touring - in 2006-07 and 2010-11.

At that time, he was handling the sensitive Sohrabuddin Sheikh case in which Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah was one of the accused (but later discharged), besides top Gujarat Police officers. "It needs to be examined at the highest level of the Supreme Court", said Rahul. The decision to raise the ante on the Loya case is clearly meant to highlight political ramifications of developments in the SC.

The pleas seeking a probe have followed two reports the Caravan magazine published that quoted immediate members of Loya's family, who questioned the circumstances surrounding his death.

Among the other party leaders who visited Gandhi's residence were Salman Khurshid, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Vivek Tankha, Manish Tewari and KTS Tulsi.

The Congress issued a statement which said observations made by the judges and the issues raised by them are extremely disturbing. The issue of judge Loya too came up. Surjewala said, "The non-finalisation of the Memorandum of Procedure has left almost 40% of the sanctioned posts of the judges vacant, leading to delay in justice delivery".
