The Judge Loya death case is increasingly contentious.
The judges at the top court took umbrage against a senior lawyer for casting aspersions on judges that they were only asking “searching questions” to those who brought the Judge BH Loya death case before it and not to the Maharashtra government.
The judges disapproved the remarks.
The bench comprises of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud.>
The strong remarks came when senior advocate Dushyant Dave said the court was not asking questions to another senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi appearing for Maharashtra, when he was arguing and he had to face all the queries.
It need be recalled that Judge Loya, who was hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, had allegedly died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014 when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague’s daughter.
