New Delhi [India], Jul 31 (ANI): The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday dismissed a review petition filed by the Bombay Lawyers Association seeking inquiry into Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) judge Justice Loya's death case.
The apex court said that the petition was a completely frivolous and has been filed in a motivated manner to denigrate the judiciary.
The top court further said that courts were not the place to settle business or political rivalry and added that matters should be fought in markets or in elections.
The apex court had on April 19 dismissed five pleas seeking inquiry into the death of Justice Loya, citing that there was no merit in the petitions.
Justice Loya, who allegedly died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur in 2014, was at that time hearing the alleged Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case in which Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and party president, Amit Shah, was named as an accused.
Since then, many petitions have been filed seeking a fair probe into Justice Loya's death alleging that he died under mysterious circumstances. (ANI)
