· Court today (19-04-2018) has observed that it was a natural cause of death of justice Loya and no independent inquiry is required. "There is a danger that the judicial process will be reduced to a charade if disputes beyond the ken of legal parameters occupy the judicial space", the bench said. He also had attacked BJP for alleging that the "invisible" hand behind the petitions was that of Gandhi who tried to use the judiciary for "character assassination" of its chief Amit Shah.

The Apex Court claimed that the pleas were "a vituperative assault on the judiciary" and "a scandalous attempt" to malign the name of the Court. "Arvind Kejriwal should also apologise", he said in a press conference. "Political rivalries have to be resolved in the great hall of democracy when the electorate votes its representatives in and out of office".

She said Kodnani, who was acquitted by the Gujarat High Court on Friday, was victimised by the Congress and implicated in a "false case" when the party was in power at the Centre, as it wanted to implicate the saffron party's leaders in false cases. This move, the petitioner says, is in contravention of Para 22 of the Memorandum of Procedure which says, "the Chief Justice of the High Court, however, should not make a recommendation of the appointment of an Additional Judge when a vacancy of permanent judge is available in that High Court".

"Frivolous or motivated petitions, ostensibly invoking the public interest", the court said, "detract from the time and attention which courts must devote to genuine causes".

The judgment narrates how the four judges - Shrikant Kulkarni-Member Secretary Maharashtra State Legal Services Authority; Modak-Principal District Judge, Pune; Barde-District Judge, City Civil Court, Mumbai; R.R. Rathi-District Judge, Baramati - were with Judge Loya at the hospital during his final hours on December 1, 2014.

Like Rahul Gandhi, Congress party has been making a number of baseless allegations against BJP as well as the BJP-led Govt.

"It was a conspiracy by the Congress and its chief Gandhi to finish the political career of BJP president Amit Shah, as part of which wrong accusations were made and an over 100-strong delegation was taken to the President", Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters. Mr. Dave had plainly said he did not believe the judicial officers.

"Surjewala also had said it was a "sad letter day" in the" country's history and pitched for a fair probe into the" matter. A clutch of pleas, including those by Congress leader Tehseen Poonawala and Maharashtra-based BS Lone, was filed in the top court, seeking an independent probe into the death.
