India court rejects pleas for probe into judge BH Loya's death

With the Supreme Court dismissing the petition that sought a court-monitored investigation into the death of Judge B.H. Loya, both the Congress and the BJP have launched a tirade against each other over the politically sensitive case. Most Indians, including those in the BJP, instinctively understand the truth about Amit Shah.

Justice Loya mysteriously died in 2014 while a case pertaining to the fake encounter killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh was pending in the CBI court in which BJP president Amit Shah was an accused.

In November past year, Caravan magazine published a report in which Loya's relatives were quoted as alleging that Loya was under "immense pressure to give a favourable verdict in the case", raising questions about the circumstances of his death. He added that the petitions were wrong as they unaware of the truth.

"CPIL procured copies of judge Loya's ECG (electrocardiogram) and histopathology report and sent them to Dr (Upendra) Kaul". The Congress had been demanding a court-monitored probe, although it was not among the petitioners in the apex court.

The Congress on Thursday said that it was a sad letter day in the country's history and pitched for a fair probe into the matter.

He also stressed that the Congress was not among the petitioners seeking a probe into the judge's death and recalled that the party had instead approached the people's court and approached President Ram Nath Kovind along with 14 other opposition parties.

A practicing lawyer and senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid said, "Many-many people would be deeply disappointed but this is the Supreme Court and if Supreme Court takes a view we have to accept it and respect it".

The court, however, held that the conduct of the petitioners amounted to criminal contempt, and though it did not initiate proceedings - stating that credibility of judicial institutions lay in their moral authority - the bench minced no words in saying the courtroom should not be the stage for settling political scores.

The BJP's attempt to misinterpret the Supreme Court judgement reflects their jitteriness and frustration. "We reject and condemn the malicious attempts of BJP to misinterpret Supreme Court judgment for finger-pointing", he added.

The apex court also said that attempts were made to scandalise judiciary by levelling serious allegations against judicial officers and judges of the Bombay High Court.

Though judge Loya died on December 1, 2014, the controversy surrounding his death surfaced in November 2017 when news magazine Caravan published two articles raising doubts on the theory that Loya died a natural death.
