CJI Dipak Misra bench shall hear cases linked to Justice Loya’s death

By on Saturday, January 20, 2018
The CJI SC, Deepak Mishra’s chaired bench shall hear the writ petitions linked to the death of CBI special Judge, Brijgopal Harkishan Loya. Justice MM Khanvilkar and Justice DY Chandchud shall be with CJI in this hearing. The hearing is to take place on Monday next week on the writ petition by Tahsin Poonawala and a journalist from Maharastra, BK Lone.
The hearing was pending before the bench of justice MM Shantanagaudar and justice Arun Mishra so far. The court had asked Maharastra government to submit the postmortem report of BH Loya and had directed to show all the related documents to the petitioners. However, the court, together, had also recommended this case to be heard at the proper Bench.
It is assumed that the matter linked to the investigation of Justice BH Loya’s death was entrusted to the bench of Justice Arun Mishra that was the main cause of call an unprecedented press conference by the four SC judges.
The four judges were: Chelameshwar, Rajan Gogoi, MB Lokur and Kuriyan Joseph. These judges had posed the question over the system of assigning the case of hearing to the Supreme Court benches by the CJI. However, judges had not mentioned any particular case, but when the journalist asked about the case of Justice Loya’s death, Justice Ranjan Gogoi had said in his tacit acceptance, yes.

On December 1st, 2014, Justice BH Loya, special judge to the CBI court, died in mysterious circumstances. He was hearing Sohrabbuddin fake encounter case of Gujarat. The present national president of BJP, Amit Shah and other police officers of state were accused in this case.
