The Congress on Thursday said the Supreme Court dismissing petitions seeking the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the alleged mysterious death of special CBI judge BH Loya will raise more questions and leave many of them unanswered.
"Dispassionate analysis of Loya judgement must await its full reasoning. But unless logical reasons found in it, it will raise more questions and leave many unanswered," Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi tweeted.
Singhvi's reaction comes hours after the top court rejected a batch of pleas seeking an independent probe into the alleged mysterious death of judge Loya, who was hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.
In his first response to the verdict, Singhvi said the top court can remove suspicions only by dealing with them directly. "Am prepared to accept a) heavy emphasis in SC Loya regarding veracity of accompanying judges b) anguish regarding scandalous arguments (c) initiation of contempt if it arises (d) provided it is accompanied by solid reasons rebutting the 7/8 suspicious circumstances raised. Absent that, above lamentations not enough (sic)," he tweeted.
Judge Loya allegedly died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014, when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter.
Maharashtra-based journalist BS Lone and activist Tehseen Poonavala had filed independent pleas seeking a fair probe into the death of judge Loya.
