A host of electronic and cyber forensic reports, which the crime branch claims would nail Vora further in fellow journalist J Dey’s murder conspiracy, are still to find mention in the supplementary charge sheet which was filed in the designated MCOCA court on Tuesday.
Joint commissioner of police, crime, Himanshu Roy claimed, however, that the reports will be furnished by the forensic science laboratory soon.
Sources in the State Forensic Science Laboratory (SFSL) at Kalina said that the process of extraction of details from Vora’s seven mobiles phones and SIM cards, a laptop, and computer hard disk used by her, would be completed by the end of this month. The details have so far been compiled in a 2,400-page document to be submitted to the crime branch, sources added.
Roy said this was the reason why the crime branch has not ‘established’ how she had provided the materials to Rajan.
The materials included the e-mails purportedly sent by Vora to Rajan, containing Dey’s articles as well as the registration numbers of Dey’s motorcycle and his addresses (residential and office). Asked how the crime branch would prove that the addressee of Vora’s e-mails was Chhota Rajan, Roy said, “we have the statement of independent witnesses, those who had sent mails to Rajan at the same address, as proof.”
He admitted that the crime branch did not have any transcript or interception pertaining to a direct conversation between Vora and Rajan in relation to the murder. “But we have intercepts of other calls,” he said.
