Bombay Lawyers association files review plea in Justice Loya case

Mumbai: The Bombay Lawyers Association on Monday filed a review plea in the Supreme Court in connection with Special CBI judge Justice Loya's death case. The court had last month rejected their petition for the reinvestigation into the case. Earlier on April 19, a bench of apex court headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra dismissed petitions seeking SIT probe into the death of Justice Loya, while ruling that he died of natural causes. A three-judge bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud heard the petition.The court further observed that the petitions were 'frivolous and motivated' and filed to settle political rivalry.Justice Loya was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, involving various police officers and Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah, before his death in December 2014.
