Amit Shah case & judge Loya case should be reopened: Shantaram Naik

The Supreme Court on Friday termed as serious the issue of "mysterious" death of special CBI judge B H Loya and asked the Maharashtra government to produce all records before it. The plea was filed by a Maharashtra-based journalist. The apex court was hearing a petition seeking an independent inquiry into the case.

The sister of the judge had later said that the then Bombay High Court Chief Justice Mohit Shah allegedly made an offer of Rs 100 crore to her brother fabourable judgement.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for Maharashtra-based journalist BR Lone who is one of the petitioners, said that she has instructions from Bombay lawyers association that this matter should not be heard by the top court.

Loya had gone to Nagpur to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter on November 30, 2014, when he apparently fell ill suddenly and died of a heart attack.

Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla, who had filed the petition, said just before his plea was to be heard this morning in the court of Justices Arun Mishra and M M Shantanagoudar, the senior advocate had pressurised him to withdraw the petition. We will hear the matter.

Poonawala, in his plea, said the circumstances revolving around the death of the judge were "questionable, mysterious and contradicting".

A PIL seeking probe into the judge's death has also been filed before the Bombay High Court on January 8 by the Bombay Lawyers' Association.

Sohrabuddin Sheikh was killed in 2005 in an alleged fake encounter by a team of the Gujarat police, which claimed that he was a member of the Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist outfit. The issue came in the spotlight in November a year ago after a report by Caravan magazine linking the circumstances surrounding his death to the trial in the Sohrabuddin case. He was the CBI judge hearing the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, which was transferred by the Supreme Court from Gujarat to Mumbai in September 2013.
