The prosecution on Wednesday began final arguments in the journalist Jyotirmoy Dey murder case. Special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat today told the court how the killing took place, and took the court through the evidence on record. He will continue his arguments tomorrow. Dey, who wrote under the byline 'J Dey', was shot dead in Powai area of Mumbai on June 11, 2011.
The court had, on August 31, 2017, framed charges against Rajan. According to the CBI's charge sheet, Rajan had the veteran crime reporter killed because he was miffed with some articles written by Dey, and also because a planned book of Dey's portrayed Rajan as a 'chindi' (petty) criminal. Rajan was arrested at the Bali airport in Indonesia on October 25, 2015, and deported to India.
In his statement before the court on January 29, Rajan denied the allegations, and claimed that police, politicians and his friend-turned-foe and fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim were behind the spate of 'false cases' registered against him. Besides Rajan, there are 11 accused in the case.
