Judge Loya verdict: UP CM seeks Rahul's apology

  • Supreme Court's official website hacked by suspected Brazilian hackers

The Supreme Court on Thursday emphatically ruled that there was no "reasonable suspicion" in the death of district judge B H Loya and slammed the petitioners seeking an independent probe for attempting to mislead the court while seeking to raise doubts over the judge's demise.

"Indians are deeply intelligent". Most Indians, including those in the BJP, instinctively understand the truth about Amit Shah.

Earlier in the day, the Congress said Loya's death had caused concern among large sections of people as he was trying the Tulsiram Prajapati-Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case, in which BJP president Amit Shah was then an accused.

He also said a "conspiracy" allegedly hatched by the Congress to frame Shah in a false case was "badly unmasked" before the people.

Referring to the apex court verdict, Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala had raised 10 questions relating to the case as he flayed the judgment and noted that the issue of criminality can be decided only through a probe. For a vile BJP to misinterpret SC's judgement to attack the Congress party reflects their jitteriness and frustration. He added that petitions were used to settle political scores.

After taking over from Judge Utpat, Judge Loya had also questioned Shah's absence and had ordered for his presence for the next hearing.

The Union Minister said that the Supreme Court's order exposes the Congress party and its intentions which are "malicious and maligning". "AIIMS doctor RK Sharma clearly stated that there was no sign of a heart attack and there was evidence that Loya was hit on head by a blunt weapon", Mr Surjewala said. "Business rivalries and political rivalries should be settled outside", the top court said. "Conduct of the petitioners and intervenors scandalises the process of the court and prima facie constitutes criminal contempt", the bench said but refrained from initiating criminal contempt proceedings. The court wondered how the senior lawyers made such callous and unverified allegations and felt it necessary to protect judges of the district judiciary and stood by their statements realising how vulnerable they are to "wanton attacks" on their independence.

Joint Police Commissioner of Nagpur Shivaji Bodkhe said the "petitions were wrong as they were unaware of the truth".

The court also condemned the manner in which CPIL brought on record the opinion of an independent expert, Upendra Kaul, to establish alleged foul play in the December 2014 death of judge Loya.
