Truth will catch up with Amit Shah: Rahul Gandhi

Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Thursday demanded an apology from Congress chief Rahul Gandhi to the entire nation for his alleged attempt to defame Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah and Indian judiciary. "There is no ground for the court to hold that there was a reasonable suspicion about the cause or circumstances of death which would merit a further inquiry".

"The people will continue to question [the cause of death of Judge Loya] and continue to question the Supreme Court's judgment".

The Maharashtra government had argued in the apex court that all pleas seeking an independent probe into Loya's death were motivated and aimed at targeting "one individual" in the guise of upholding the rule of law.

His death raised questions from certain quarters about the possibility of a foul play.

He wondered why those in power are "shying away from a probe" if they "agree it is a natural death". He also said that petition had personal interest, not public interest.

"[People] want to know that in a case involving some very powerful people the judiciary is capable of acting independently", Alok Prasanna Kumar of the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy told Al Jazeera.

The apex court also said that attempts were made to scandalise judiciary by levelling serious allegations against judicial officers and judges of the Bombay High Court.

The special CBI judge had died of "cardiac arrest" in Nagpur on December 1, 2014, when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter. "This has bordered on an attempt to misrepresent the facts and mislead the court", the bench added on its judgement.

Earlier, Maharashtra's Journalist B.N. Lone and Tehseen Poonawalla filed a petition in Supreme Court to initiate an independent probe in this matter.

The BJP on Thursday said the "invisible hand" behind the petition on Judge B.H. Loya case was of the Congress and its President Rahul Gandhi and they should apologise to the country for defaming the judiciary.

Hitting out at Surjewala, Javadekar said Gandhi made capital of it by addressing a press conference and taking 150 MPs to the doorsteps of the President of India.

"It is unfortunate that the BJP is doing cheap politics even on the death of judge Loya".
