CBI Justice Loya

New Delhi, March 16: The Supreme Court today reserved verdict on petitions seeking a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the death of CBI Judge BH Loya.

Earlier, the apex court had asked the Maharashtra Government to submit the postmortem report of Judge Loya, who had died in alleged suspicious circumstances in 2014, citing that the “matter was very serious.”

Following an elaborate hearing, a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud reserved the judgement.

According to reports, Maharashtra-based journalist Lone and activist Tehseen Poonavala had filed independent pleas seeking a fair probe into the death of Justice Loya, who was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, involving various police officers and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah.
