Investigate Death Of Judge Handling Amit Shah Case, Says Justice AP Shah: NDTV report

Justice AP Shah said head of judiciary or Chief Justice of Bombay High Court should look into the matter

New Delhi:  How a judge deciding whether BJP chief Amit Shah should be tried for murder died in December 2014 must be investigated, says one of the most respected judicial voices in the country, Justice AP Shah.

In an interview to NDTV, Justice AP Shah, who retired as the most senior judge of the Delhi High Court and headed the Law Commission said, “His family feels very strongly that there was some foul play in his death. Now there was a long list of circumstances starting from the fact that there was blood on his clothes, and somebody signed the postmortem report as it is. They feel that there is something wrong with the conclusion that he died of cardiac arrest.”

His comments are based on a report by Caravan, a news magazine, in which family said that they are not convinced that his death was a natural one. Justice BH Loya died five months after taking over Amit Shah’s case.

“I feel that it is very necessary that the head of judiciary – either CJI (chief Justice of India) or Chief Justice of Bombay High Court should look into it,” said Justice AP Shah.

Activists and journalists have also demanded a thorough probe into the death under highly suspicious circumstances of judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya.
