New Delhi, May 21: The Bombay Lawyers Association has filed a review plea in Judge BH Loya case in Supreme Court today. The plea requested an independent probe in to the into the death of CBI special judge BH Loya. The lawyers association had filed the petition before the Bombay High Court and was thereafter transferred to the Supreme Court by itself only.
The review plea filed by senior advocate Dushyant Dave also asked SC to delete the questionable findings during the course of judgement which stated that the independent probe initiated by the lawyers was an attempt to sabotage the Indian judiciary and hence put a blot on the credibility of the judicial institutions. The senior advocate said that the judgement in the BH Loya case had been manipulated and justice had not been meted out to his family. The review petition stated that it was questioning the enquiry report prepared by the Maharashtra Police’s Commissioner of Intelligence on Judge Loya’s death.
This isn’t the first time that the Bombay Lawyers Association had filed a petition for independent probe. The court had rejected their petition for re-investigation in the case last month itself. Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud on April 19 had dismissed the petition saying that documentary evidence suggested that Judge Loya’s death was a natural one.
However, the advocates demanding a probe into the CBI special judge’s death case said that the inquiry into the matter would only calm down the speculations around the case and bring out the truth. If the probe results turned out to be the same as mentioned before, then the image of Supreme Court would further be elevated in people’s eyes and it would also give a strong message to the community at large that judiciary never fails anyone.
