Supreme Court decides against independent investigations in Justice Loya's death.

The Hush Post: In the latest development, the Supreme Court has ruled out investigation into the death of special CBI judge BH Loya.

A number of petitions demanding an independent probe into the matter were summarily dismissed.

Judge Loya passed away in Nagpur on December 1, 2014. He died of a cardiac arrest while in a marriage function of a colleague’s daughter.  At the time the incident took place, he was hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case when he died of cardiac arrest.

According to reports, Loya’s friend from law college, Uday Gaware, at a public meeting of various civil societies and political groups, shocked and surprised all saying that the judge’s death was a ‘premeditated murder.’

Though, the Maharashtra government had argued that all pleas asking for an independent probe were motivated.

BJP president Amit Shah and Rajasthan home minister Gulabchand Kataria, former Gujarat police chief PC Pande, ADGP Geeta Johri, Rajasthan-based businessman Vimal Patni, Gujarat police officers Abhay Chudasama and N K Amin have been discharged in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

Subsequently, a number of of pleas, filed by Tehseen Poonawala and Mumbai-based B S Lone, were filed in the SC requesting for an independent probe into Loya’s death in 2014.
