Press Statement


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

The exposure in sections of the media raise serious issues over the circumstances of the death of the CBI court judge, H. P. Loya, in November 2014. Justice Loya was hearing the case regarding the encounter killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh in 2005. The family members of Justice Loya have alleged that attempts were made to bribe and intimidate him during the course of the trial. 


These have raised disturbing questions of murder, bribery, subversion of law and the manipulation of institutions of our parliamentary democracy at the highest level, which must be seriously investigated. 


The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands that a high level judicial enquiry be instituted immediately to look into this whole affair.
