CJI Dipak Misra to hear Judge Loya case on Monday

Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra has taken the case of controversial mysterious death of Mumbai's Special CBI judge Brijgopal H Loya for hearing by his Bench on Monday since Justice Arun Mishra recused last Tuesday.

The reassigning of the case to the chief justice's court is being seen as an effort to assuage the concerns of the four dissenting judges.

The two PILs, which were heard two times briefly by Justices Arun Mishra and Justices Mohan M Shantagoundar earlier, were on January 16 directed to be posted before an "appropriate bench".

They had pleaded with the country to save the constitution as they felt that not everything was right in the working of the court and how the cases were handed to the justices.

Three judges, who, in order of seniority, stand a chance of becoming the CJI were asked by Justice Misra to be present during the talks because the issue raised by the four judges relates to the administrative function of the office of the CJI, the people explained.

Chief Justice Misra, as the master of the roster, has chose to hear the case himself. Last week, Mishra delivered a lecture to the most senior four SC judges about dividing the court along the lines of senior and junior ranks.
