Judge Loya death: SC adjourns case to March 5, says it is treating case seriously

The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned the hearing in the case related to the death of special Central Bureau of Investigation judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya to March 5 as arguments were inconclusive.

During the hearing, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justice Chandrachud assured the petitioners that they were treating the case with the “highest amount of seriousness”, according to The Hindu. “We treat it as a cause,” they said. “We do not care what is being said outside, but we will do our duty if any fact arouses our suspicion.”

A Supreme Court bench, comprising Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and justices AM Khanvilkar and DY Chandrachud, are hearing petitions that demanded an independent investigation monitored by the Supreme Court into Loya’s death.
