Have no suspicion on death, don't harass us, says Justice Loya son

Four Supreme Court judges slam administration of India’s top court

Lawyer Ameet Naik reiterated Loya's view at the press conference on Sunday.

At the press conference today when Anuj Loya was questioned about the past and how his family had raised questions on the death of Judge Loya, he said that his family did have suspicions earlier which could be attributed to the emotional turmoil they were in but now both he and his family were sure that there was no suspicion behind the death of Justice Loya.

When asked about the later, Anuj had written in the past or the interview given by his family members where they expressed doubt about Loya's death, late judge's son said that they were under mental distress at that point of time.

Death of BH Loya - the judge who was hearing the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case - in December 2014, found mention in the open press conference held recently by top four judges of the Supreme Court - Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph - during which they attacked the Chief Justice over allocation of cases and alleged faulty administration of the top court.

Judge Loya, who was hearing the sensitive Sohrabuddin Sheikh "fake encounter" case, had allegedly died of a cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014, when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter.

A teary-eyed Anuj said that his family has no suspicions now regarding the death, but they are being "harassed" and "victimised". "We don't have any allegation to make against anyone, we are really pained. we are trying to get out of this thing". "We faced some pressure from politicians and NGOs".

This is not the first time Anuj Loya has denied any controversy. In November, TOI reported that Anuj called on the Bombay High Court Chief Justice Manjula Chellur to convey that the family had no complaints or suspicions about the circumstances of his father's death.

When Anuj was asked if he wanted an investigation into his father's death, the 21-year-old said, "I am no one to decide if there should be an investigation. His mother is ill and needs medical treatment". We have no suspicion on his death.

"There is no controversy, no need of politicising the issue". "This is a tragic event. We don't want to be victims of politicization", Naik said on behalf of the Loyas. "Let it remain the way it is, non - controversial", he added. The petition in the Loya case is now being heard by a bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Mohan M Shantanagoudar and is due to come up for hearing on January 15.
