"Judge Loya Death Is Natural": 5 Big Quotes From Supreme Court Today


NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has rejected petitions seeking an independent probe into the death of Judge BH Loya. A top court bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra observed that Judge Loya's death was "natural". The other two judges in the bench are Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud. The Supreme Court said it takes strong exception to the insinuation that one individual controls the judiciary.

Business rivalries have to be resolved in the market, and political rivalries in the hall of democracy. It's the court's duty to protect the law.
