Meanwhile, another woman came forward on Saturday and handed over a mobile phone to the Crime Branch that she claims she had purchased from Vora. Few days ago, Murtuza, a close aide of Vora had approached the court and surrendered three phones and a SIM card that he alleged that the scribe had given him before her arrest.

Confirming the news, a Crime Branch official said, "At the time of Vora's arrest, we had confiscated two phones that she was using. Now we have seized six phones including two BlackBerrys, one iPhone and another Samsung model. We have sent all the phones and one memory card to the forensic laboratory for further investigations." The police will now wait for laboratory results that will give them all details about her calls and messages.
