The Supreme Court on Thursday said that the Special CBI judge BH Loya died of a natural death and all the PILs filed to probe the mysterious death of the CBI Judge without any truth was an attempt to scandalise Judiciary by putting a doubt on the statements of the former decision by the Bombay High Court.
On December 2014, Loya died due cardiac arrest while attending the wedding of a friend’s daughter on 1st December,2014 but later on in November 2017, Loya’s sister have filed a petition stating that his death is somewhere connected to the Soharbuddin fake encounter case which was handled by Loya.
Later on, four-judge bench of the Bombay High Court including Shriram Modak, R Rathi, Shrikant Kulkarni and Vijay Kumar Barde said that there was no reason behind the loya’s death, but it was soon criticised by the senior advocates including Dushyant Dave, Indira Jaisingh, Prashant Bhushan and juniors of Senior Advocate V Giri.
The court finally observed that, “Serious attacks were made again at the Judges of Bombay High Court. Even the judges of the Supreme Court were not spared, which is a serious problem”.
They added, “Frivolous and motivated petitions should be discouraged. Business rivalries and political rivalries should be settled outside”.
Senior leaders including Amit Shah, Rajasthan home minister Gulabchand Kataria, Businessman Vimal Patni and former Police chief PC Pande have already been discharged from the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.
