BH Loya death case: Opposition delegation submits memorandum to President

BH Loya death case: Opposition delegation submits memorandum to President

Speaking to reporters after meeting the President, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said: "We met the President over Judge Loya's death. What is required is a thorough investigation through a team of independent officers selected and monitored by the Supreme Court".

According to the news reported in Hindustan Times, a memorandum has been signed by MP's 114 MP's from 15 parties which include DMK, SP, Congress, AAP, RJD, Muslim league, AIUDF, CPI, CPM and others.

Advocate P.S. Surendranath, appearing for the All India Lawyers' Union, sought an independent probe into the death of judge Loya and urged the court to ensure that judges dealing with high-profile cases, particularly those belonging to politicians, should be provided "Z-plus" category security.

Judge Loya, who was hearing the sensitive Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, died of a cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014.

The memorandum further pointed out that suspicion that it was not a natural death but a murder arose from the fact that two of his confidantes, including a retired district judge, also died in the suspicious circumstances.

Rahul said the President gave them a positive response and assured them of looking into the matter. "These matters can not be decided through a Public Interest Litigation", he said.

Lookout for Price Target? Gentex Corporation (GNTX), Cardinal Health, Inc. (CAH)
Cerebellum GP LLC purchased a new stake in Cardinal Health in the fourth quarter worth $129,000. (NYSE:CAH) for 355 shares. St Johns Investment Management Limited Liability Company has 1,100 shares. 6,045 were reported by Charter Trust.

Indira Jaising, counsel for the petitioners, argued that neither a First Information Report nor any other report concluding the investigation was filed in the matter after the judge's death. "They wanted an independent probe and did not want the investigation to be handed over to the CBI", he said.

On being asked for the reason to approach the President while the case is being heard by the Supreme Court, Kapil Sibal, who accompanied the delegation said that there is no investigation by the apex court. "Either you [the Supreme Court] say they are all lying or you dismiss this case today", Rohatgi told the court.

The move comes on a day when Chief Justice Dipak Misra heard a plea seeking a SIT probe into the circumstances of Judge Loya's mysterious death that took place in 2014.

"We believe that if lives of judges and lawyers are jeopardised for doing their duty, then democracy is under grave threat...."

"To uphold the majesty of the law, we request you to intervene in the matter".

The parties made it clear that "neither the CBI nor the NIA, considering their recent track record should be entrusted with the investigation".
