New Delhi, April 26: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Thursday said the PILs filed in Judge Loya case were politically-motivated.
Addressing a press conference, the former Union Minister stated ” After the investigation of Judge Loya case, there were several PILs lodged. But by the recent SC judgement, PILs have been considered to be politically-motivated”.
Sibal claimed that a PIL was filed in Nagpur bench by Suraj Lolage, who is an RSS ideologue, on 27 November 2017. Lolage had contested for a BJP ticket in Municipal elections.
“After the press conference in AICC on 30 Jan 2018, a phone conversation between Suraj Lolage and Satish Uke’s brother revealed that Lolage’s petition intended to elevate Judge Loya case to the apex court, where independent probe was rejected”, he added.
The Congress leader further stated that “What does this show? Clearly, Bhaiyyaji Joshi and the RSS were very keen that this matter be heard in the Supreme Court as quickly as possible because they are the ones who initiated the PIL.
Sibal cited two possibilities either RSS’s Bhaiyyaji Joshi wanted that an enquiry into Judge Loya’s death be conducted or wanted an outcome which ensures that the matter is closed without an enquiry.
