Loya death case should be reviewed by larger bench: CPI-M

Hyderabad, April 19: Terming the Supreme Courts decision in special CBI judge B.H. Loyas death case as “unfortunate”, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Thursday demanded that the case be heard by a larger bench of the apex court. “The Supreme Court’s rejection of all petitions demanding an independent probe into the death of Judge Loya and holding such petitions as ‘scandalous’ by a three-member Bench is unfortunate,” the party, whose 22nd Congress is in session here, said in a statement. “The circumstances of Judge Loya’s death raised several questions. The CPI-M holds that the matter should be reviewed by a larger bench of the Supreme Court,” it added. (IANS)
