The Mumbai crime branch continues to remain clueless about the four assailants who gunned down senior journalist Jyotirmoy Dey in broad daylight in Powai on July 11.
Police sources said almost all the evidence including phone call records, closed-circuit television footage from the camera on the spot and Dey’s email accounts had been scanned thoroughly for a lead without success.
The crime branch, however, maintains that they have a few leads. Himanshu Roy, joint commissioner of police (crime) said, “We have narrowed down on a few leads. Investigations are on to get to the accused.”
Initial investigations had led the Powai police to detain three persons, and there were rumours of the case being solved. But examination by senior police officials ruled out their involvement after the persons said they were forced to confess.
Even questioning those involved with the oil and diesel mafia, quarrying mafia and the underworld, about whom J Dey wrote extensively, yielded no results.
