Justice Loya case: Here's the entire chronology of events

The Supreme Court has on Thursday dismissed petitions seeking the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Judge B.H. Loya's death case.

In the 114-page verdict, a bench comprising Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud launched a stinging attack on the credibility of the petitioners.

The bench said that in their practice before this court, counsel are "expected to assist the court with a sense of objectivity in aid of justice".

The top court said the judicial process will be reduced to a "charade" if the courts are burdened with such cases with extraneous reasons.

Union Minister Rajnath Singh has also welcomed Apex Court's decision on judge Loya case. Judges of the Supreme Court hear appeals arising from judgments rendered by judges of the high courts in which they served, either as judges or on appointments as Chief Justices.

"There is no merit in the petitions and there is no reason to doubt the statements of (then) sitting (Bombay High Court) judges".

"The SC while dismissing the petition seeking independent investigation into Judge Loya's death, said that "Judges can't lie".

"The circumstances of Judge Loya's death raised several questions".

Release of Dark Souls Remastered pushed back to Summer 2018 on Switch
The current-gen remaster of the first Dark Souls game is highly anticipated by fans of the third-person action-RPG series. Bandai Namco recently confirmed that the Dark Souls Remastered Network Test will be available on all platforms.

In a scathing verdict, bench headed by CJI raps petitioners and lawyers for attempting to "scandalise" the judiciary.

Addressing the media soon after the apex court pronounced its verdict over death of Judge Loya, who was earlier holding trial in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh staged shootout case, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said the petitions were filed with a political agenda. Most Indians, including those in the BJP, instinctively understand the truth about Mr Amit Shah. "The verdict gives a clear message that the judiciary can not be misled by allegations based on political vendetta", he said.

Judge Loya died on 1 December 2014 while attending a wedding with fellow judges in Nagpur. "And we will follow journalistically the qns [questions] that continue to puzzle the circumstances of Judge Loya's death", he said. "There was a time when my role was doubted", he told ANI. "I urge Rahul Gandhi not to fight political battles through corridors of Court", Prasad said while a meeting.

The state government had defended its probe, which established that Loya's death was natural, and categorically stated that a fresh probe will "unnecessarily bring the judiciary into disrepute".

The evidence available has led the apex court to believe that Loya did, indeed, die of natural causes.

March 12: A Mumbai-based lawyers' body brings on record in SC an order of the Bombay HC to allege that one of the two judges, who had given statement in the Loya death case, had ordered settlement of a criminal case against a top BJP leader in 2014.

The saffron party accused the Congress and its president, and other Opposition parties for allegedly trying to malign BJP President Amit Shah.
