Supreme Court rejects petitions urging investigation into death of Justice BH Loya

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has rejected the petitions urging an investigation into the death of judge BH Loya. The Supreme Court bench was headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and other two judges — Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud.

In their ruling, the bench observed that Justice Loya’s death had been ‘natural’.

To the implication that one individual controlled the judiciary, the bench made their difference clear and how it took a strong exception to that.

After the Court ruling on the suspicious death of Judge Loya, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala has addressed the media.

Surjewala said the verdict indicates a sad day in India’s history and the verdict has left many questions unanswered. In his address, Sujerwala raised questions targetting the BJP chief Amit Shah. “The verdict marks a sad day in India’s history. The Supreme Court verdict has left many questions unanswered. There were discrepancies in the post-mortem report, even in recording the name of the victim properly,” said Surjewala.

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra has also addressed the media after the court declared its judgment on the Judge Loya case. Sambit Patra said the petitions were filed with a political agenda. “For some time, a few people were trying to politicise the judiciary. The court has slammed the petitioners who were demanding a SIT probe into the death of Judge  “Who held a press conference on January 12, 2018? It was Rahul Gandhi. It will be true to say the invisible hand, the invisible body that the Supreme Court is talking about… is none other than Rahul Gandhi and the Congress,” he said.
