Judge Loya's family says nothing suspicious about death

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, who was accompanied by family members at a hurriedly convened press conference on Sunday evening.

Anuj, who was flanked by Ameet Naik, founder and managing partner of Naik & Co, a law firm, said that they found nothing suspicious about his father's death.

Judge Loya (48) was an additional sessions judge who presided over a CBI court in Mumbai that was hearing the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case.

BJP president Amit Shah was an accused at one point of time and now stands discharged. Judge Loya died in Nagpur in December 2014.

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