Describing the allegations in the suspicious death of former CBI Judge BH Loya as “serious,” the Supreme Court today asked for all documents related with the case, saying that it would look into it “in a fair way”.
“Let us have full documents, let our conscience not feel that we didn’t look at some documents,” said Judge DY Chandrachud, who is also a member of the bench headed by the Chief Justice Dipak Misra which is looking into the case. The judges also asked the Bombay Lawyers’ Association, which has filed a petition in connection with the case at the high court, for all documents related to the case.
The Supreme Court has rejected the demand by Maharashtra government to not make the documents related with the case public. The request to stop the media from reporting the procedures of the case was also dismissed by the apex court.
Loya case was the main motive for the four senior Supreme Court judges, justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, MB Lokur And Kurian Joseph, to come out in public to criticize the way cases were assigned by the Chief Justice of India.
