In a sensational development, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Thursday alleged an RSS link to how the Judge BH Loya’s case in the Supreme Court was compromised.
In a special press conference, Sibal, himself a noted lawyer, played an audio clip allegedly a conversation between a PIL petitioner and a senior RSS functionary. Sibal also said that the man who filed PIL in Judge Loya’s death case was a BJP member and an RSS worker identifying him as Suraj Lolge.

Sibal also said that the Indian judiciary was in danger adding that ‘If it doesn’t stand united in one voice then democracy would be in danger.’
He congratulated Indu Malhotra’s appointment as a new Supreme Court judge but also expressed his shock on the Centre withholding the file of Uttarakhand High Court’s Chief Justice KM Joseph.
He said, “Have heard today that the government has returned the file for reconsideration. This has been our charge – that the central government wants judges of their choice.”
He said that the current government led by the Narendra Modi was only keen to have judges of their choice. He urged judiciary to speak in one voice ‘Enough is enough.’ He also asked lawyers if they would raise their voice against the central government.
The Centre on Wednesday had approved Malhotra’s name while withholding Justice KM Joseph’s name. Justice Joseph had quashed the Modi government’s order to impose the President’s Rule in Uttarakhand, then governed by the Congress.
