SC dismisses plea for SIT probe in Judge Loya case

Amit Shah | Twitter @AmitShah

The aura created by the petitioners that the PILs were meant to protect the independence of the judiciary - by seeking a probe into the death of Judge Loya - was a mere "facade". Dr RK Sharma, one of India's foremost forensic experts, after examining medical documents opined that Justice B.H Loya seemed to have died because of trauma to the brain, and even possible poisoning. "Judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya's suspicious death had anguished and caused concern in large sections of our populace for he was trying the Tulsiram Prajapati/Sohrabuddin encounter case, where one of the accused was none less than BJP National President, Shri Amit Shah". "There was some suspicion before due to emotional turmoil, but now it is clear", Anuj Loya told reporters in January. The Apex Court slammed petitioners and said that there will be no probe in this case as it was an attempt to malign judiciary.

At the time of his death, Judge BH Loya was hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

On Thursday, the official website of Supreme Court was assumed to be hacked in the morning.

It had come down heavily on alleged accusations, bullying of judges in the top court by some activist lawyers in the Loya case and said that the judiciary and judicial officers need to be saved from such averments.

"The statement given by the four judges, as it would amount to doubting the integrity of the institution", the bench observed.

After his death, there were speculations that there was some foul play in judge Loya's death. But there are still questions before those who believe in the judiciary, Surjewala said.

He also said that his family does not have any doubt about the "integrity of investigative agencies".

The BJP leader further said that the case was not activated to serve public interest but to serve the interests of the Congress.

The Union minister said Gandhi should apologise as he had led a delegation of opposition MPs to the President and his party had held press conferences seeking a probe into the special CBI judge's death.

Attacking the BJP for accusing Congress president Rahul Gandhi's as being the invisible hand behind the petitions seeking the probe, party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala termed the allegations as a malicious attempt which showed the ruling party's jitteriness.
