Anuj Loya, the son of special CBI judge BH Loya who allegedly died under mysterious circumstances, said Sunday that the family has no complaints against anyone. 

"Have no suspicion over father's death. Had suspicion earlier but now it is over," PTI reported Anuj as saying at a press conference in Mumbai today. 

PTI added that Anuj, with tears in eyes, urged NGOs and politicians to stop "harassing" his family over his father's death. 

"Our family is pained with the chain of events in past few days. Please don't harass us," ANI reported Anuj as saying.

The four seniormost judges (after the Chief Justice of India) of the Supreme Court had, in an unprecedented move, called a press conference on Friday. 

The four judges -- Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph -- raised a litany of problems, including the assigning of cases, allegedly afflicting the country's highest court. 

It is thought the judges -- who did not mention specifics -- were also referring to Justice Loya's death.

Other judges have also called for the death to be investigated. 

Justice Loya had been hearing the Sohrabuddin encounter case in which BJP President Amit Shah is also named. 

The Caravan magazine had, after talking to Loya's family members, first reported that he had died in mysterious circumstances. 

Subsequent news reports have partly corroborated the Caravan report, while disagreeing with other parts of it.
