Ghazanfar Abbas, IndiaTomorrow.net,
New Delhi, Nov 28: Questioning the silence of judiciary and Bar Association of India on the reported ‘suspicious’ death of CBI Special Judge Brijmohan H. Loya, a young advocate Dushyant addressing a press conference here at Press Club of India, on Monday, asked whether judiciary is “frightened”. Surprising over "almost no coverage" of the matter by the mainstream media, Adv. Dushyant demanded a high level judicial probe.
 
“I am personally ashamed over the silence and no response of Bar Association on this. On constitution day even Chief Justice Dipak Misra did not speak up. Judiciary itself takes suo moto in even small matters. Is judiciary also frightened like media?” Adv. Dushyant questioned.


Earlier, he said that it seems media is so scared or its priority is not to focus on major issues.
 
Adv. Dushyant shockingly said: “NDTV is the only channel which covered this matter. Either the entire media is so scared or for media Padmavati is more important than such a death of a judge. In both circumstances the country is in grave crises. The main essence of reporting is truth of power.”

“There should be a judicial probe by the judges who having highest integrity,” he demanded.
 
Adv Dushyant practices at Delhi High Court, has also written a letter to Editors Guild in this regard.
 
Reportedly, Judge Loya, 48, had died suffering a massive cardiac arrest on December 1, 2014 when he went Nagpur to attend a wedding function. At the time of his sudden death, Judge Loya, was hearing the politically sensitive Sohrabuddin A. Sheikh 'encounter' case in which an accused was BJP President Amit Shah, later acquitted.

Recently a report of the Caravan Magazine based on the interviews of Judge Loya's sister Anuradha Biyani, niece Nupur Balaprasad Biyani and father Harkishan highlighted inconsistencies in the account of Loya's death. His family members had noticed blood on his clothes. The postmortem report was also allegedly signed by "maiyatacha chulatbhau", or paternal cousin, while his family says there is no such person in the family.

Magzine's another report also said that Judge Loya was allegedly offered Rs 100 crore for judgment in favor of Amit Shah.


Meanwhile former Delhi High Court Justice A.P. Shah and Latur bar association also sought high level probe into the matter.
