With verdict out, Congress hones in on ‘unanswered questions’ in Judge Loya case

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said that there were discrepancies in the post-mortem report and even in recording the name of the victim properly

With verdict out on the Judge Loya case, the opposition Congress on Thursday said that the Supreme Court judgment dismissing a batch of pleas seeking an independent probe will raise more questions.

Congress said that this will leave many of the questions unanswered unless logical reasons were found in it.

It need be recalled that Judge Loya allegedly died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014.

He had been hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.

In his first response to the verdict, Singhvi said the apex court can remove suspicions only by dealing with them directly.

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said that there were discrepancies in the post-mortem report and even in recording the name of the victim properly and these questions have now remained unanswered.

Judge Loya’s death had come under the spotlight in November last year after media reports quoting his sister had fuelled suspicion about circumstances surrounding it and its link to the Sohrabuddin case.

But his son on January 14 said in Mumbai that his father died of natural causes.

Maharashtra-based journalist BS Lone and activist Tehseen Poonavala had filed independent pleas seeking a fair probe into the death of Judge Loya.

Senior advocates Dushyant Dave, Indira Jaising, V Giri, PS Surendranath and Pallav Shishodia along with advocate Prashant Bhushan appeared for the petitioners.
