Petition filed in SC over Loya's death motivated: Lawyers body 13.1.2018 General News
The Bombay Lawyers Association (BLA) today claimed a petition filed in the Supreme Court, seeking a probe into the death of special CBI judge B H Loya, was "motivated". The petition, filed by journalist B R Lone, was submitted to ensure a petition by the association on the same issue is not heard by the Bombay High Court, the BLA claimed. The association had earlier this week petitioned the HC, seeking a judicial inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Loya in 2014. Loya, at the time, was hearing the case related to the alleged fake encounter killing of gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife Kausar Bi and associate Tulsi Prajapati in 2005. BLA president Ahmed Abdi today held a press conference following allegations made by four senior judges of the Supreme Court claiming impropriety on part of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra in assigning important cases. Among the cases mentioned by the four SC judges included the one linked with Loya's death. "Our ...

Bilkis gangrape: SC for Gujarat's reply on compensation 10.1.2018 General News
A plea demanding exemplary compensation for Bilkis Bano, who was gangraped during the 2002 riots in Gujarat, today led the Supreme Court to seek the response of the state government.
