CJI Misra now to hear PIL into Loya death after junior bench bowed out

The reasassignment to a CJI-headed bench follows the recusal of the junior bench that had been assigned by Misra to look into the allegations of foulplay in Justice BH Loya's death, which had led to the four-most senior apex court judges, other than the CJI, to hold a press conference about Misra's alleged trend trying to manipulate cases through is power of bench assignments.

The Hindu reported:

Chief Justice decides to hear PILs on CBI judge Loya’s death

A three-judge Bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra will hear on January 22 two PILs for an independent probe into the death of CBI judge B.H. Loya.

Justice Loya, at the time of his death in December 2014, was hearing the politically-sensitive Sohrabuddin Sheikh police encounter case.

On January 16, a Bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Mohan M. Shantanagoudar recused themselves from hearing the PILs any further by inserting a line in their order saying “put up case before appropriate Bench.”
