Loya died of a cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014, when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for journalist Lone, also said that matter should not be heard by the apex court.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and M M Shantanagoudar asked the Maharasthra government to file reply by January 15 when the next hearing will be held. "It is unprecedented. All citizens who love the idea of justice, who believe in the Supreme Court are looking at this issue and it is important that it is addressed", Congress President Rahul Gandhi who was flanked by other party leaders said while addressing a press conference in New Delhi.

The Supreme Court Bar Association on January 13 said that the charges against Misra were not "substantial".

The Bench, however, went ahead and heard the matter and posted it for further hearing on Monday.

Poonawala, in his plea, said the circumstances revolving around the death of the judge were "questionable, mysterious and contradicting".

Only three days ago on January 9, the Bombay Lawyers Association had also filed a PIL in the Bombay High Court, seeking a probe into Loya's death and pointing out a high-profile case of Gujarat he was handling at the time of his death.

After Loya's death, Shah was discharged by another judge who came to preside over the case on ground of no evidence. "The judiciary, if not protected, may be unable to fulfil its duty towards public at large", the petitioner said.

The sister of the judge had later said that the then Bombay High Court Chief Justice Mohit Shah allegedly made an offer of Rs 100 crore to her brother fabourable judgement.

Justice Loya's death in mysterious circumstances had become one of the most debated issues of the previous year, and it looks like the case has bled into the year as well.

Judge Loya's death has been oft discussed topic on the social media, as people demand a proper inquiry in the case and a balanced justice.

Loya, who was presiding over the CBI court in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, passed away on December 1, 2014.

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