The Mumbai crime branch filed a supplementary chargesheet in the J Dey murder case on Tuesday, a day after the first death anniversary of the slain Mid-Day journalist.

Special public prosecutor took permission of the court — where the hearing of the bail plea of key accused Jigna Vora was scheduled — and filed an application to submit the 121-page chargesheet.

Dey was shot dead in suburban Powai on June 11 last year by assailants, who followed him on motorcycles.

According to the police, underworld don Chhota Rajan, who was upset with two articles written by Dey, had ordered the killing.

The supplementary chargesheet contains further evidence against the Vora, formerly the deputy chief of bureau of a city-based English newspaper, and another accused Deepak Sisodia, who allegedly supplied guns used in Dey’s murder.

The chargesheet includes a copy of the attendance register of the newspaper where Vora worked, which shows that she was on leave from June 9 to June 19 last year, during which Dey was murdered.
