Your friend's former company called him twice to give him chance to have second tenure. However, both the times the deal did not get through. You and your friend feel that HR has spiked it. But then it is only your surmise. We do not know the actual reasons.
In the last paragraph, you have queried whether the job candidate is entitled for the reasons for the turning down his/her candidature. The simple reply is no, job candidate is not entitled. Nevertheless, since it is your friend's former company, then informally HR might disclose as to why his candidature was sidelined.
In fact, after getting bitter experience to rejoin, your friend should not have taken second chance to rejoin. Probably he forgot age old proverb "once bitten twice shy". Since he was not shy, he was bitten once more. This is how person becomes wise.
Lastly, ask your friend who had made overtures for his rejoining. Was it he or it came from other side. If other side, and that too both the times, then tell your friend to write a letter to company's MD enumerating his bitter experience.
The last lesson is not to consider rejoining this company for the third time!

Though we are not aware of the fact that to which category the individual belongs either professional category like Law, Medicine or C.A or non-professional like Engineering, technology or HRM. Generally, loyalty to the profession rather than loyalty to the organization is a preferable trait of professional employees. But, employers are always and everywhere the same; they'll prefer employees with high degree of loyalty to the organization when the degree of employability being the same or similar when more than one is in the final list for selection.
Therefore, my opinion is that the poster can cull out the answers from his story itself. Earnestly solicit the views of experts.

The old company itself had internal disagreement about the candidate.
HR disagreed with the technical department choice of calling back the candidate.
Probably it had something to do with his exit.
As learned member Shri Umakanthan said loyalty may be doubtful.
The candidate in question should treat it as a learning experience and leave it at that.
No point going back to the company even informally to find out what happened.
The way "one is treated gives you the unsaid message"
Do not try to go back to the old company.
There is resistance to taking you back and working there will not be advantageous to employee and employer.
The candidate should learn from this and move on.
Every mis step is a learning experience.
Do not worry if you learn right lessons by your own self analysis of the fiasco,it is worth it.

It is made out that HR has foiled twice rejoining of an ex-employee in the company when some other selectors were appearing keen on hiring him.
Whether HR had any valid reasons for his rejection or not, to ask to make any close guess , in my view, is absurd. Besides, HR or anybody involved in the selection process owe no answer to anybody for non- selection.
I think we are discussing non -issue here.

All the views expressed by our members are in one voice.
The important points have been already addressed.
I am curious to know why the candidate wants to know the reason for rejection.
This is not some thing like an appraisal feedback to tell areas of improvement.
Suppose he comes to know that MD has rejected him.
In what way this will benefit the candidate?
On contrary if HR has rejected, what will be the use of such an information?
Please ask him to concentrate and look forward.
From now onward, let him refrain from being inquisitive about not being selected
in future interviews also.
