Judge Loya’s death, one of the most controversial topics of this and the previous year has turned another interesting corner, as petitions that are seeking independent probe in the death of Loya wll be now heard by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud on Monday. The issue of Loya’s death became even more controversial when four judges,J. Chelameswar, by Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice M.B. Lokur and Justice Kurian Joseph from the supreme court held a press conference a week ago, an action which was unprecedented and caused a lot of finger pointing against the supreme court, and the chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra himself.
They had pleaded with the country to save the constitution as they felt that not everything was right in the working of the court and how the cases were handed to the justices. Even as the case has been dragged to the media spotlight time and again, B.H Loya’s son, Anuj Loya had also recently the media, saying that his father died of natural causes and they don’t have a suspicion of someone else’s hand in his demise. He also asked media and other to not politicized his father’s death, telling the media that he had been in turmoil after his death and could not think to make proper decisions at that time.
Judge Loya had died while he was still hearing the integral, and very controversial Shohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, after he was replaced, the new judge gave the prime accused, Amit Shah a clean chit. This has indeed been one of the most worrying part of the whole situation, which is why the case has become public so quickly and doesn’t seem to have any end for now.
