Fact check: Did Amit Shah organise Judge Loya’s son’s press conference

Yesterday, late judge BH Loya’s 21 years old son, Anuj Loya held an emotional press conference, where he appealed to the NGOs, politicians and lawyers to stop harassing him and his family. He said that he had no suspicion about any foul play in the the death of his father.

But far from empathizing with the family that has been struggling to come to terms with the incident, a new controversy has broken out.

BH Loya, who was the special Central Bureau of Investigation judge presiding over the trial of BJP President Amit Shah and various top cops of Gujarat in the alleged fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and his wife Kauser Bi, had died 3 years back in Nagpur, at the age of 48. Suddenly last year there were claims that his death was not natural — something which his son denied in the press conference.

However, some journalists and politicians alike were quick to jump the gun and cast aspersions that BJP President Amit Shah ‘arranged’ the press conference and that Loya family is saying this under pressure from the BJP.

A Newslaundry columnist, who has been known for spreading bigotry and propaganda, was quick to accuse Amit Shah of ‘arranging’ the press conference. He claimed that this fact was revealed during the press conference itself.

He then showed ’empathy’ towards judge Loya’s son for having to deal with people who ‘most probably killed his father’.

Former member of Congress’ ‘digital communications team’, Gaurav Pandhi, who has previously taken to spreading morphed images, too accused Amit Shah for ‘organising’ the presser.

Supreme Court Lawyer and politician Prashant Bhushan, who too has found spreading propaganda on Twitter, also claimed that the press conference was organised by Amit Shah.

Discredited IPS officer, Sanjiv Bhatt, who spends his time spreading muck on social media, copied Bhushan’s tweet as if a ‘WhatsApp group’ was activated to spread the agenda.

However, while the above were busy spreading this narrative, some people from the same left-liberal cabal had a different view. A journalist from TheWire and even editor of JantaKaReporter, which often report fake news, countered these claims:

Anti-BJP journalist Abhisar Sharma too was cautious about this:

Others too called out the spin of likes of Prashant Bhushan:

When the abusive Newslaundry columnist, whose propaganda was re-tweeted by AAP chief and Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, was presented with facts, he showed his arrogance by refusing to accept correction.

So what is the truth? If you hear the video, it is quite clear that one of the representative nods in the direction of Ameet Naik, the lawyer, who is sitting on his right and says “We thank Mr. Ameet sir for the support”. A representative thanking his lawyer for the support was made out to be him thanking BJP national president for ‘arranging’ the press briefing. Because, clearly, how can there be two people with the same first name, right?

This goes out to show how the propaganda tools were activated last evening, to discredit Anuj Loya, just because what he had to say about his father’s death didn’t suit the ‘agenda’. Very soon this clip will become viral on social media, and a new lie will propagate.
