Shrinivas Loya, the 81-year-old paternal uncle of the special CBI judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya, has said that the judge’s son Anuj Loya is “too young” and likely “under pressure,” after the 21-year-old addressed a press conference in Mumbai on Sunday, 14 January. Anuj claimed in the press conference that there was “no doubt in family” that his father had died a natural death.
Shrinivas, speaking to The Caravan magazine late Sunday night, also said he wanted an inquiry into the death of the judge, who purportedly died of a heart attack in Nagpur, in December 2014.
When asked why Anuj, who appeared in the video recordings of the Mumbai press conference to be referring to a written statement on his lap, would have told the press what he did, Shrinivas said: “Now what should I say. Is he adult enough? He’s just crossed 18. There might be pressure [on him.]”
