BJP alleges Rahul Gandhi's "invisible hand" behind Judge Loya death probe

The Court while dismissing petitions seeking SIT probe into Loya's death said that there is no merit in the petitions and there is no reason to doubt the statements of sitting Judges, the attempt of the petitioners was to malign the judiciary. "AIIMS doctor RK Sharma clearly stated that there was no sign of a heart attack and there was evidence that Loya was hit on head by a blunt weapon", Mr Surjewala said. On 1 December 2014, the judge died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur, where he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter.

"There was some suspicion before due to emotional turmoil, but now it is clear", Anuj told reporters in January. Dismissing all five PIL filed by different groups the apex court said that it seems the petitions were filed to settle some political scores. "It will be true to say the invisible hand, the invisible body that the Supreme Court is talking about... is none other than Rahul Gandhi and the Congress", he said.

The Congress retorted that Thursday was a "sad letter day" in India's history and reiterated its demand for a fair investigation into Loya's "mysterious death".

The Bench also observed that Senior Counsel Dushyant Dave has transversed to the extent of insinuating even judges not associated to the present petitions, and that the petitioners sought to tarnish the institution of judiciary under the garb of an investigation.

Justice Chandrachud, who wrote the verdict, described the PILs as a "vituperative assault on the judiciary". The BJP also said that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi should apologise and he believes in "break-India brigade".

The death of the judge came into the light after The Caravan magazine published an interview in which Loya's sister Anuradha Biyani, and father Harikrishan alleged a foul play.

BJP Delhi chief Manoj Tewari said several leaders, including Gandhi and Kejriwal, were at the forefront of attacking the BJP and "dragging" the name of its national president in the case.

Activist Yogendra Yadav while reacting on the SC verdict said, "If Judges can't lie, what about the four judges who held a press conference on 12th February?"

Taking similar lines, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, "People who have been politicizing the judiciary for their own motives, now stand exposed".
