He also described the public interest litigations seeking the probe into the death of Judge Loya as "political interest litigation", and charged that Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his party were behind it.

After the court's observation that judge Loya died a natural death, it is clear that the political parties, including the Congress and the AAP, were running a "politically motivated" campaign to "tarnish" the image of Amit Shah, he alleged. Amit Shah was later discharged from the case.

The issue of Loya's death had come under spotlight in November previous year after media reports quoting his sister fuelled suspicion about the circumstances surrounding it and its link to the Sohrabuddin case. Judge Loya died as a result of natural causes. The account of the incident provided by the four judges of the Bombay High Court appeared "credible, consistent and truthful" and "there is no reason for this court to doubt the veracity of their statements". He wrote, "The four judges of the Supreme Court who held the controversial Press Conference are all experienced judges and in my view men of high integrity".
