SC to hear tomorrow the plea seeking probe into Judge Loya's death

In an unprecedented move, four senior-most judges in the Supreme Court, after the Chief Justice, Justice J Chelameswar, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Madan B Lokur and Justice Kurian Joseph, held a press conference to talk about the issues plaguing the apex court.

Judge Loya was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case in which BJP president Amit Shah and senior police officers were accused.

Before the commencement of hearing senior counsel Dushyant Dave, representing Bombay Lawyers' Association said, the high court was already seized of the matter and the top court should refrain from hearing the issue.

On the last date of hearing, Dave, along with senior advocate Indira Jaising, had submitted before the court since a similar plea demanding an independent probe into the death of judge Loya was pending before the Bombay High Court, the apex court should not hear it.

The Supreme Court will not hear a plea seeking probe into Special CBI Judge BH Loya's death case on January 15 due to non availability of judge M Shantanagoudar. The court heard the petitioners despite being informed that Bombay HC was looking into it.

Abdi on Saturday said he would now be filing an intervening application in the Supreme Court, seeking that the case and all petitions pertaining to it be heard by the Bombay Hight Court as it is in-charge of Maharashtra's subordinate judiciary of which Loya was a part.

High court registrar general SD Agarwal, however, refuted the allegations and said at present there is only one registrar doing the job of accepting petitions, PILs and other suits, and numbering them.

The Bench, however, went ahead and heard the matter and posted it for further hearing on Monday.
