Cops say murder of J Dey was contract killing

The Mumbai Crime Branch claimed to have made a major breakthrough in the J Dey murder case late on Sunday (26-June-2011) night.

“We have cracked the case. At least five persons have been detained from the state as well as from outside the state,” a senior Crime Branch official said.

J Dey (56), working with the city-based English tabloid MiD-Day, was shot dead by four motorcycle-borne assailants in suburban Powai on June 11.

Dey was shot at from close range, reportedly by professionals, and a total of 5 bullets entered his body.

The Mumbai Police claim to have made a breakthrough in the murder case of senior journalist Jyotirmoy Dey, with the arrest of seven people.

Police sources said it seemed like a case of contract killing and that the shooters were suspected to be members of the Chhota Rajan gang.

The seven people, from Mumbai and Karnataka, were arrested after several rounds of questioning; more than 70 suspects have been questioned by the police so far.

The Mumbai Police Commissioner will hold a press conference later today to share all details of the case.
