J Dey case: charge sheet filed

Mumbai police on Tuesday filed a supplementary charge sheet against scribe Jigna Vora and another accused Deepak Sisodia in the J Dey murder case, a day after the journalist’s first death anniversary.

The crime branch has attached a page of attendance register of the month of June 2011 with the 120-page charge sheet filed in the MCOCA court here showing that Vora was on leave from June 9 2011 to 19 June 2011. Dey was killed on 11 June.

Vora, deputy chief of bureau of a city-based English newspaper, was arrested on 25 November under Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act [MCOCA] for complicity in murder of the senior journalist.

Fugitive underworld don Chhota Rajan is said to be behind the killing. Vora is accused of passing on key information like the number plate of Dey’s motorcycle and his residential address to Chhota Rajan.

‘Vora did not inform me before she proceed for leave neither she called me when she was not reporting to work,’ said the attendance keeper of the newspaper in which Vora worked.

The charge sheet strengthens the prosecution case against arrested accused Deepak Sisodia and also names people who provided SIM cards to him, crime branch sources said. ‘Sisodia used two mobiles phones to talk to Rohit Thangappan Joseph alias Satish Kalya and absconding accused Nayansingh Bisht’, they said.
