PIL In Bombay HC For Making Public All Death Records Of Judge Loya
The bench adjourned the hearing by two weeks.
A lawyer moved Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court on Monday, seeking action against lawyer Yogesh Nagpure, activist Suraj Lolage and government officials for allegedly defrauding the judiciary in Justice Brijgopal Harkishan Loya‘s death case.
The bench, comprising of justices Bhushan Dharmadhikari and Shreeram Modak adjourned the hearing by two weeks and didn’t issue notices to any of the respondents, The Times of India.
The petitioner Abhiyan Barahate alleged that the respondents cheated the High Court, Supreme Court as well as the public by “abusing the process of law and interfering with the delivery of justice.”
Barahate also prayed the court to disclose original records of earlier two cases regarding Loya’s death filed by Lolange and Nagpure. He further asked the court to order the respondents to reveal the names of all government officials associated with the case.
Barahate’s lawyer Shashibhushan Wahane said that both criminal PILs were filed earlier this year. The first one was to the apex court while the second one was pending before Nagpur court, until last month. The SC remitted the first PIL back to High court, after which it was withdrawn.
Judge Loya, who was presiding over the CBI court in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, where BJP President Amit Shah was the main accused.
