Two days after Special CBI Judge BH Loya’s son claimed that he is convinced that his father died a natural death, Maharashtra Police on Tuesday said that there was no foul play in his death.
Nagpur Joint Commissioner of Police Shivaji Bodkhe said, “Judge B H Loya died due to a heart attack.”
“After our thorough investigation we have found that Loya died a natural death. Postmortem and forensic report confirm his death due to heart attack,” added the joint commissioner.
The officer added that postmortem and medical reports did not find anything unusual or any poisonous substance in his body.
The Nagpur Police investigated the matter after a report of accidental death was filed in Loya’s case.
Judge Loya died on December 1, 2014. His death raised a massive political storm since he was hearing the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case, in which BJP chief Amit Shah is one of the accused.
