Meanwhile the Maharashtra Government on Tuesday handed over documents in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court during the hearing of the Justice Loya death case.

Senior advocate Harish Salve appeared for the Maharashtra government. The case has been deferred till next week the case and asked to share the details with the petitioners.

A Mumbai-based journalist, BR Lone, and social activist Tehseen Poonawalla have filed the petition for an impartial probe into the death.

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.

BJP chief Amit Shah was an accused in the case but had later been discharged.

Journalist Niranjan Takle, who had written an article on the death of judge Loya, raised questions on who convinced the judge Loya’s family members that the death was due to natural causes.

Judge Loya’s son, Anuj, on Sunday in a press conference said that his family has no suspicions now regarding the death, and that they don’t want to be victims of any political issue.

Loya’s death is the subject of a PIL in the Supreme Court that was one of the triggers for the revolt against Justice Misra.
