“Loya’s sister gave an interview, alleging that he was offered a bribe of Rs 100 crore along with a flat in Mumbai if he were to deliver a verdict in favour of the accused”, he said.
His kin had publicly said that clothes had blood stains, especially near his neck, the Congress leader further said.
The ECG and histopathology report showed no evidence of a heart attack whatsoever. AIIMS doctor RK Sharma clearly stated that there was no sign of a heart attack and there was evidence that Loya was hit on the head by a blunt weapon,” Surjewala added.
Asking how there was no record of the judge travelling by train from Mumbai to Nagpur, the communications in-charge of All India Congress Committee (AICC) claimed that Loya had no security protection during his visit to Nagpur.
Surjewala said that there was no record of Judge Loya staying in the hotel and there was no reason for three judges to sleep in two beds during their stay when adjoining rooms were empty.
The Congress leader said ” the Post-Mortem was conducted without information and consent of any family member, adding there were discrepancies in recording the name of the victim properly.
