The government should not interfere in the functioning of the judiciary, the Sena chief said.

Pushing the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance further to the brink, Uddhav Thackeray today extended his support to the four rebellious senior Supreme Court Judges. "However, this inquiry should be unbiased", Thackeray told reporters here. He alleged that attempts are being made to make the judiciary "dumb and deaf".

The Shiv Sena, an ally of the BJP, praised the four judges and said attempts were being made to make the judiciary "deaf and dumb". "Only winning elections is not administration", Thackeray said.

Uddhav Thackeray has demanded an indepth probe into the death of B H Loya, who as special Central Bureau of Investigation judge was hearing the case of gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh's "fake" encounter.

Uddhav said the press conference was a shocking event and added that people would now wonder if they should trust the judiciary. "If someone thinks that Loya has died under suspicious circumstances and has asked for a probe, then an indepth probe needs to be conducted in order to get to the truth of the case", he said. "But the government should not take the judiciary for granted", he said.

Further questioning the timing of President Ram Nath Kovind's visit to the city tomorrow, Thackeray sought to know what pressing engagements he had here when the apex court was facing a crisis.

Unless this institution is preserved, "democracy will not survive in this country", they had said. "Why is the President coming to the Mumbai?". "Let the judges sort it out among themselves", he said.

Four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court had on Friday addressed the media, accusing the Supreme Court's administration of "not being in order" and said that their efforts to persuade CJI Dipak Misra "with a specific request" failed, forcing them to "communicate with the nation" directly.
