Judge Loya’s son had on January 14 said in Mumbai that his father had died of natural causes

The Supreme Court today dismissed pleas seeking an independent probe into the death of the special CBI judge and ruled that he died of natural causes.

"Indians are deeply intelligent".

Judge Loya allegedly died of cardiac arrest in 2014 at age 48 while he was presiding over a case in which Amit Shah, a close ally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, had been accused of ordering three extrajudicial killings in 2005 and 2006. "The truth has its own way of catching up with people like him", Mr. Gandhi tweeted. Petitions were filed in the Supreme Court seeking an independent probe after judges in a lower court had dismissed the need for a probe.

Workers are £14 a week worse off than they were in 2007 - with pay packets not expected to return to their pre-crisis level until 2025".

Bringing down the curtain on a strenuous five month effort by petitioners, who vehemently and vociferously sought to create a cloud of suspicion over Judge Loya's death on December 1, 2014, the SC bench not only rejected their claims but described the petition as a frontal attack on the judiciary through a spate of scurrilous allegations. "There is no reason to doubt the consistent statements by judges who accompanied Judge Loya to Nagpur". The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came down heavily on Congress President Rahul Gandhi, saying he should apologise to Shah, the country and the judiciary.

Holding that there was absolutely no merit in the petitions, a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said that Judge Loya met a natural death while in Nagpur.

On the plea that the judicial officers have to be cross-examined, as there are inherent contradictions in their statements, the bench said when there is very little proof that they are conspirators in a murder, the court must stand by the statements of the judicial officers.

Roll Camera Action: The revival of Saudi Arabian cinema
Saudi Arabia is screening the Hollywood blockbuster " Black Panther " in the first movie theater to open in the country. However, on the bright side recently Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said that abaya is not mandatory in Islam.

In the high-profile Sohrabuddin case, Amit Shah along with Rajasthan home minister Gulabchand Kataria, Rajasthan-based businessman Vimal Patni, former Gujarat police chief PC Pande, Additional Director General of Police Geeta Johri and Gujarat police officers Abhay Chudasama and NK Amin have already been discharged.

"It is a travesty of justice in the guise of demanding independence of judiciary as if there is a great danger to this institution", the court said. It clearly means that the case was fought as a political battle against our party president.

Slamming BJP further, the Congress party said, "BJP's attempts to make false political capital out of Supreme Court Judgement must be condemned". "The attempt of the petitioners was to malign the judiciary", the bench hearing the petitions said. It has "left many questions unanswered", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
