Lady journo, a suspect in J Dey murder

The arrest of a lady journalist is imminent in connection with the murder of veteran journalist Jyotirmoy Dey, popularly known as J Dey, who was shot to death on June 11 outside Crisil Towers at Powai.

If the sources in the crime branch are to be believed, a lady journalist working with an English broadsheet daily has played a significant role in Dey’s murder conspiracy.

Being quite cautious in investigating this angle, Mumbai’s crime branch has garnered crucial evidence against her, since it is believed she was instrumental in poisoning gangster Chhota Rajan’s ears against Dey.

In this regard, said a highly placed officer from crime branch, “the lady had informed Rajan about the two articles written against him by the deceased journalist.” Dey had written these articles just a couple of weeks prior to his murder. Also, the suspected journalist had provided Dey’s motorbike number to Rajan, who then passed on this number to the assailants, added the officer.

Subsequently, the assailants killed Dey when the latter was traveling from his bike towards his second house at Powai, said police.

Though the top brass crime branch officials are tightlipped about the journalist’s involvement, in an internal meeting of the top brass crime branch officials held on Friday evening,  the investigations in Dey’s case, in which the suspected journalist’s role were reportedly discussed.

The meeting was called following the 30 days of extension granted by the court yesterday.

The what and the why

Competition in profession and a kind of insecurity about Dey is considered as one of the main reasons for which the lady journo had helped Rajan, said a crime branch officer, requesting anonymity. That Dey and the suspected journalist did not get along was a known fact in police circles as well as in the journalist fraternity.

A heated argument had taken place between Dey and the journalist when the latter had gone to meet Rajan’s close aide, the late Farid Tanasha, at his residence at Tilak Nagar in Chembur sometime after his release from jail, said the sources in the police.
