The Supreme Court, which began hearing the petitions asking for a probe into the death of Justice Loya on Monday, said "we must look into all documents with utmost seriousness."

The court also transferred to itself two petitions from Bombay High Court relating to the alleged mysterious death of special CBI judge BH Loya. The court also restrained all high courts from entertaining any petition relating to Loya's death. 

The court also asked all parties to catalogue documents in the matter which have not been filed so far and to submit them. 

The court also asked lawyers not to cast aspersions on BJP President Amit Shah. 

"As of today, it was a natural death. Do not cast aspersions," the court said.




The court termed as "serious" the issues raised in the pleas; saying "we must look into all documents with utmost seriousness".
