The report also shows that five bullets hit him, of which, four hit him in the left chest and one was lodged under the right shoulder.

While speculation is rife that it was the work of the underworld, the police for now say that it was the work of professionals.

“We are probing the incident from all angles. But our line of investigation is going towards checking the possible involvement of people associated with the oil mafia. The journalist had extensively written a number of news reports on the oil mafia, which may have triggered them to eliminate him,” a senior police officer said on condition of anonymity,

Dey had extensively covered crime and underworld over two decades.
