Judge Loya's death has been oft discussed topic on the social media, as people demand a proper inquiry in the case and a balanced justice.
It was a day when four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court placed their case before the public to decide in the interest of the nation, they said. A controversy arose a few months ago when a publication carried articles, quoting close family members, raising suspicions on his death. "Unfortunately, our efforts have failed in convincing the Chief Justice of India to take steps to protect this institution", Justice Chelameswar said.
It is said the four judges had tried to persuade the CJI on Friday morning to delete and reassign the cases that were listed before the judge - ranked 10th in terms of seniority. One of the accused persons in the alleged murder of Sohrabuddin was the BJP President Amit Shah.
Loya had died under mysterious circumstances in 2014.
"We are filing an intervention with the Supreme Court to have this case heard by Bombay High Court, which is in charge of the subordinate judiciary of Maharashtra of which Judge Loya was a part", Abdi said. Later the same year, Amit Shah was discharged by the Mumbai special CBI court.
