A three-page letter addressed to the President has been prepared and several opposition leaders and MPs have already signed it, as per Indian Express.

Justice Loya case: Opposition MPs to submit petition to President Ram Nath Kovind

Congress had raised more questions over the death of judge B H Loya since the four senior most judges of the Supreme Court - Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph - questioned the Chief Justice of India's conduct over allocation of cases to judges. Congress demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe by a special investigation team (SIT) into the case.

Special CBI judge Loya, who was handling the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, died of a heart attack in November 2014 in Nagpur. Later, political parties, including the Congress, alleged that he died in mysterious circumstance and demanded an investigation into it.
