In a surprising development, late Judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya's family said that there was nothing suspicious in his death and they should not be harassed.

"We are pained by the chain of events. Please do not harass us," said Judge Loya's son Anuj Loya, who was accompanied by other family members at a hurriedly-convened news conference on Sunday evening.

Anuj, who was flanked by Ameet Naik, founder and Managing Partner of Naik Naik & Co, a law firm, said that they found nothing suspicious about Judge Loya's death.

Judge Loya (48), who was an additional sessions judge and presided over a CBI court in Mumbai that was hearing the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case, in which BJP president Amit Shah was an accused at one point of time and now stands discharged, died in Nagpur in December 2014.

"My fathers death was tragic. I don't have any suspicion about his death," said Loya, a second-year law student.

The Loya family appeared before the media just two days after four top Supreme Court judges raised questions on Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra's certain actions, which they said, had adversely affected the judiciary.

When asked about the statements of family members earlier, he said:"That time there was an emotional turmoil…..I am requesting the media to convey to journalists, NGOs, lawyers, activists and politicians not to harass us."

Asked whether he wants a probe on the death of his father, he said, "Who am I to decide, I have nothing to say (on the demand of the probe)…. I was 17 at that time and I was in emotional turmoil, I didn't understand anything at that time."
