SHOCKING twist to ‘judge’s revolt’: Petitioner Tehseen Poonawala in Justice Loya case claims he was pressurised to withdraw plea, Says Dushyant Dave told SC Bench no 10 Arun Mishra is a henchman of CJI Dipak Mishra so cannot be trusted
Congress upto something fishy in Loya case since it involves Amit Shah of BJP
if the Petitioner has no problem with the SC Bench no 10 which was appointed by CJI why are advocates of congress have any problem with SC Judge Arun Mishra??
Why is there a constant conspiracy to undermine CJI Dipak Mishra since he is appointed by PM Modi.???
Now does changing a Judge bench mean as per congress’s requirement…the decision would be changed as well ???
Why did Lawyer Dushyant dave bully & forced Tehseen poonawala & stood up during the case hearing to withdraw the plea filed by Tehseen Poonawala unilaterally ??
In a shocking twist to the ongoing dissent in the judiciary saga, a petitioner in the case of the alleged mysterious death of Justice Loya has made damning claims, suggesting that senior legal counsel attempted to pressurise him to withdraw the case from the bench of Justice Arun Mishra, who had been assigned to hear the case by the Chief Justice of India.
Columnist Tehseen Poonawalla, the peitioner in the case, told Times Now that senior counsel Dushyant Dave had tried to “bully” him into withdrawing the case from the SC bench.
Dave had apparently tried to persuade Poonawalla by alleging that Justice Mishra was a “henchmen” of CJI Dipak Misra and hence the bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra was “not good” and should not hear the case.
“Dushyant Dave told me that Arun Mishra is Dipka Misra’s henchman and he is not a judge who can be trusted,” Poonawalla said.
Recounting the sequence of events, Poonawalla added Dave had initally agreed to his request to represent him in the court in the case but upon learning that it would be heard by Justice Mishra, strongly suggested that the case be withdrawn from the SC and asked Poonawalla to approach the Bombay High Court instead.
When Poonawalla refused to act on his advice, an angry Dave reportedly walked off leaving him to fend for himself in the court.
Interestingly, when the case was heard by the SC bench on Friday, Dave, who was apparently not representing anyone in the case, pleaded before the bench to let the matter be withdrawn, Poonawalla claimed.
The petitioner further added that another senior legal counsel, Indira Jaisingh, also approached the SC bench, requesting the matter to be withdrawn before the SC.
Now, yesterday, four sitting judges of the Supreme Court- Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Kurien Joseph and Madan B Lokur – had made alarming allegations against Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra, claiming administration mismanagement at the top court and stating that ‘democracy was under threat’.
Reportedly, the trigger for the virtual revolt by the four senior judges was the assignemnt of the case pertaining to the death of Justice Loya, who died in 2014 when he was hearing the sensitive case of Sohrabbudin Sheikh encounter case, in which BJP chief Amit Shah was also named but later discharged.
