NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court (SC) today said it will continue to hear the plea in the judge Loya death case on February 5, Monday, after arguments remained inconclusive, reported news agency ANI.

The SC had on January 22 transferred to itself two cases from the Bombay high court (HC) about the alleged suspicious death of CBI judge BH Loya.

The SC then also asked other HCs not to entertain any PILs on the issue relating to Loya’s death and posted the matter for hearing on February 2.

As the Maharashtra government presented documents related to the Judge Loya death case, the SC said the issues raised in the current petitions are serious and “we must look into all documents with utmost seriousness.” The apex court then asked all parties to file any and all documents relating to judge Loya’s death.

A PIL seeking a probe into the judge’s death was filed before the Bombay HC on January 8 by the Bombay Lawyers’ Association (BLA).

On January 22, the BLA’s counsel, Dushyant Dave, said the documents produced by Maharashtra were incomplete. In fact, he said he had documents obtained under RTI to show there were indeed suspicious circumstances attached to judge Loya’s death.

At the time of his death, on December 1, 2014, Loya was hearing the case of the alleged fake encounter killing of gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh in which BJP chief Amit Shah was an accused party along with several others. Shah was subsequently discharged from the case by the judge who took over the case after judge Loya’s death.

The two petitions which are pending in the apex court have been filed by Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla and Maharashtra-based journalist BS Lone.

Later, an application was filed by former Navy chief L Ramdas seeking an independent inquiry by a panel of retired apex court judges and former police officers into Loya’s death.

The Maharashtra government is represented by advocate Harish Salve.

Dave, the BLA’s counsel, took issue with Salve representing Maharashtra. He said Salve was Amit Shah’s counsel in the fake encounter case and therefore cannot appear for the Maharashtra government.

A three-judge SC bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra are hearing the pleas seeking an investigation into the death of the CBI judge.
