New Delhi Feb 2: Supreme Court will continue hearing the plea demanding SIT probe in alleged mysterious death of Special CBI judge Justice B H Loya on Monday as the arguments remained inconclusive on Friday.
Dushyant Dave, lawyer appearing for Bombay Lawyers Association, pleaded to SC that the Bench must direct to let the pleadings be completed and so that he has time to file the rejoinder. Dushyant Dave demanded an independent investigation.
A bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra will be hearing the petitions. Earlier in the month, the top court asked the Maharashtra government to submit the postmortem report of the CBI judge, who had died in alleged suspicious circumstances in 2014, citing that the “matter was very serious.”
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.
