SC says no to independent probe into death of Judge BH Loya



Supreme Court has dismissed petitions seeking independent probe into the death of special CBI Judge BH Loya; calls these petitions a real and frontal attack on the independence of Judiciary.

The Supreme Court Thursday dismissed a batch of petitions seeking an independent probe into the alleged mysterious death of special CBI Judge BH Loya. A bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said, there is no reason to doubt the statements of judges accompanying Justice Loya that the death was due to a natural cause. Holding that there was absolutely no merit in the petitions, the bench said, attempts were made to scandalise the judiciary by levelling serious allegations against judicial officers and Judges of the Bombay High Court. The court said, with these petitions it is clear that a real attempt and a frontal attack was made on the independence of the judiciary.

In its judgement, the Apex Court said, frivolous and motivated litigation has been filed to settle political rivalry. Reacting on the judgement, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, the Supreme Court order has sent out a clear message that the judiciary cannot be misled by allegations based on political vendetta.

Senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said,  Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who had made malicious allegations against  BJP Chief Amit Shah, should tender apology.

Meanwhile, Congress said, it is committed to people’s demand for a fair investigation in the matter surrounding Judge Loya’s death. Party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said it is unfortunate that the death of a judge is a matter for celebration for the BJP.

The death of Justice Loya  had come under spotlight in November last year after media reports had fuelled suspicion about circumstances surrounding it. With Souvayga Kar, Anupam Mishra AIR News New Delhi.
