is open to reinvestigating the death of special CBI judge B H Loya in 2014, state home minister Anil Deshmukh said on Thursday.

Loya, who was hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case of Gujarat, died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014, when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter.

"Our government is open to reinvestigating the Loya death case," Deshmukh told reporters.

"Some people are meeting me today to demand that the case be reopened. It will be reinvestigated if necessary," Deshmukh said.
