Bombay High Court grants bail to accused in J Dey murder case
Bombay High Court on Wednesday granted bail to Paulson Joseph, an alleged member of Chhota Rajan gang and accused in the murder of journalist Jyotirmoy Dey. Justice U V Bakre granted bail to Joseph on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh. Paulson is the second accused to get bail in this case. The crime branch had arrested altogether 11 accused in connection with the crime. Former journalist Jigna Vora, who was also arrested in the case, was the first one to get bail. Paulson is likely to come out of jail on Monday after bail formalities are complied with, his lawyer O A Siddiqui said. Siddiqui argued that there was no evidence against his client to connect him with Dey’s murder. Hence, he should be granted liberty.
