Judge Loya death case: Opposition asks President for SIT probe

Judge Loya

As many as 114 Opposition MPs called on President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday and submitted a memorandum demanding an Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the Judge Loya death.

Over 100 Opposition MPs from Congress, Trinamool Congress, Samajwadi Party, Nationalist Congress Party, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Rashtriya Janata Dal, the left parties, Aam Aadmi Party, IUML, AIUDF, RSP, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, KC (M) and Janata Dal (Secular) asked the President to ask for a Supreme Court-monitored SIT to probe the alleged mysterious death of CBI judge B H Loya.

“We met the President over Judge Loya’s death. Many MPs are of the opinion that there should be an investigation over Judge Loya’s death,” Congress President Rahul Gandhi said.

“Judge BH Loya death is suspicious. There have been two other subsequent suspicious deaths. A judge died under suspicious circumstances. It will be an ode to him and his family that the investigation takes place properly,” he added.

The Congress party also released a copy of the memorandum on its Twitter handle.

“We don’t trust CBI or the NIA. We know what CBI officers do…in the case of Sohrabuddin, CBI didn’t file an appeal. If an independent SIT can be formed for the 2G case which was a commercial issue, then why one cannot be constituted for a probing suspicious death of judge?” Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said.
