The SC was scheduled to hear a plea for an independent probe into the death of Judge Loya who was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.

The Congress Twitter handled wrote: "We are very concerned to hear 4 judges of the Supreme Court expressed concerns about the functioning of the Supreme Court".

The Bombay Lawyers Association on Saturday claimed that a Supreme Court case asking to investigate the death of special Central Bureau of Investigation judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya was motivated and was filed only after the Bombay Lawyers Association had filed a similar case at the Bombay High Court. "This is a serious matter", the bench said.

Judge Loya was hearing the fake encounter case against Amit Shah, who also had to serve time in jail before being released.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for journalist Lone, told the Court that she has also got instructions from the Bombay lawyers association that this matter should not be heard by the top court.

Rahul called for an SIT on the Loya case under the supervision of senior most judges of the apex court.

Petitioner Bandhuraj Sambhaji Lone, a Maharashtra journalist, has also made the Centre a respondent.

Wenger To Stay At Arsenal Till 2019
The Frenchman signed a new two-year deal ahead of this season and it is understood there is no break clause in the contract. Wenger, however, signed a new deal at Arsenal a year ago and said he was as committed as ever to seeing out his contract.

Loya died of a cardiac arrest in Nagpur on 1 December, 2014 where he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter. There has been some suspicion that Loya's death was not natural, and his family has alleged now that he was offered a bribe of 100 crores before his death.

A total of 23 accused, including police personnel, are facing trial for their involvement in the alleged fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife Kausar Bi and their associate Tulsidas Prajapati in Gujarat in November 2005.

The case was later transferred to the CBI and the trial was shifted to Mumbai.

He, however, refused to divulge the name of the senior lawyer.

On January 8 previous year, the Bombay Lawyers Association had filed a public interest litigation in the Bombay High Court seeking a probe into Loya's death.

"I have full faith in the judiciary".
