Judge Loya death case: SC asks Maharashtra govt to give petitioners access to 'confidential' documents

Jan 16:The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing on two petitions seeking an independent probe into the death of CBI Special Judge Brijmohan Loya in 2014. The court has not fixed any specific date for the next hearing in the case.
The petitions were filed in the top court last Thursday and allocated to Justices Arun Mishra and Mohan M Shantanagoudar the next day who sought the Maharashtra government's response on the pleas by January 15. The hearing was deferred to Tuesday as Justice Shantanagoudar was not available.
In today's hearing, in response to senior advocate Harish Salve, who appeared for Maharashtra, placing documents relating to Loya's death in a sealed envelope before the court, the two-judge bench directed him to supply documents to the petitioners. Justice Mishra observed it was "a matter where they should see everything". The petitioners in the case are Maharashtra-based journalist B R Lone and Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla. Lone sought a fair probe into the alleged mysterious death of Loya. Poonawalla, in his plea, called the death of the judge "questionable, mysterious and contradicting".
On Friday, following the assignment of the case, four top judges of the Supreme Court held an unprecedented press conference in which they said they had approached Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra regarding the same. Although they did not specify the case, Justice Gogoi replied in the affirmative when asked if it was about the case on the death of Judge Loya. Agencies
