‘Rajan thought scribe J Dey was working for Dawood’
Gangster Chhota Rajan, prime accused in the journalist J Dey murder case, thought that the veteran crime reporter was working for his rival Dawood Ibrahim and ISI, according to the charge sheet filed by CBI. Dey was killed, allegedly upon Rajan’s instructions, in suburban Powai on June 11, 2011. According to CBI, Rajan told one Manoj on phone that journalist Jigna Vora used to tell him “repeatedly” that Dey “is writing wrong things and is in touch with the other gang”, and was a traitor. Transcripts of Rajan’s telephonic conversations are part of the charge sheet filed by CBI in a local court last week. Rajan further said that Dey was not a good person, and was working for Dawood and ISI. Jigna used to tell him that Dey was a “traitor”, he said. Dey’s wife told CBI that for a month before his murder, he was very upset. “Once he told me that he was going to die,” her statement reads.
