Journalist Jigna Vora, arrested in connection with the murder of senior crime reporter J Dey, will get access to home-cooked food in prison on grounds of her health.
A designated Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Court on Wednesday approved the application on the issue filed by Vora, lodged in a Byculla jail here.
A defence lawyer said that the court allowed her to have home-cooked food while she was in judicial custody, since she had been suffering from various ailments, including asthma.
Vora was arrested on November 25 last year under the MCOCA for Dey’s murder. Vora has been accused of passing key information to underworld don Chhota Rajan, who allegedly ordered Dey’s killing.
