    The Supreme Court will on Friday hear the plea demanding an independent investigation in the death of special CBI judge BH Loya, who was hearing the controversial Sohrabuddin Sheikh 'fake encounter' case.

    A bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra, will hear the petitions.

    Judge Loya had died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014, when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter. After Loya's death, special judge M B Gosavi, who took over the trial, had discharged Shah and some other accused.

    Loya's death came under the spotlight in November last year after media reports quoting his sister fuelled suspicion about the circumstances surrounding it, and its possible link to the Sohrabuddin case.
