Justice Loya Death Case

Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Chief Sharad Pawar and Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh have asked for the reopening of Justice B.H. Loya death case.

Justice B.H. Loya mysteriously died in Nagpur while he was heading a bench probing Suhrabuddin Sheikh fake encountert in Gujarat. BJP President and Union Home Minister Amit Shah was one of the accused in the case.

Justice Loya died on December 01, 2014 reportedly due to cardiac arrest while he was in Nagpur to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter. However, his family has maintained that there was a conspiracy behind his death.

“If there is a demand for an investigation, then one should think about it – on what basis are they making this demand, what is the truth in it, this should be investigated", Sharad Pawar said in an interview with a Marathi TV channel.

"If there is something in it, then maybe a re-investigation should be done. If not, then it is not right to make baseless allegations on anyone either”, he added.

Senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh also raised similar demand. He also demanded from the newly formed Maharashtra government to set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the matter once again.

"This is a very serious charge by the sister of Justice Loya. Now that we have a non-BJP Govt in Maharashtra why can't the Govt set up an SIT who can investigate under the directions of an Independent Judicial Commission which the Govt can set up in a certain time frame", he wrote on Twitter.

Digvijaya Singh also tagged with his post a 2017 news report in which Justice Brijgopal Harikishan Loya's sister Anuradha Biyani had alleged that Loya confided in her that Mohit Shah, the then Chief Justice of Bombay High Court, offered him a bribe of Rs 100 crore for a favourable judgement in the Sohrabuddin case.

There are reports tha Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will take a final call on the matter very soon.
