Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Thursday informed that the state government is willing to reinvestigate the death of Judge BH Loya. 

Loya, special CBI judge, who died on December 1, 2014, was handling the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case. In this case, current Union Home Minister Amit Shah was one of the key suspects. 

Our government is open to reinvestigating the Lota death case. Some people are meeting me today to demand that the case be reopened. I will hear them out and if necessary, the case will be reinvestigated,” said Deshmukh during a presser.

Deshmukh refused to reveal the people meeting him requesting him to reopen the investigation on the Loya death case. 

In 2014, Loya died of cardiac arrest when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague’s daughter in Nagpur. 

Earlier, Journalist Niranjan Takle broke the story of Loya ‘Murder’ case on ‘The Caravan’ which raised doubts over Judge Loya’s death.
