The Khar police have taken DNA samples of model Viveka Babajee’s two former boyfriends — Kartik Jobanputra and Gautam Vora — in connection with the investigation of her death. The police said on Wednesday that test reports are expected in a month’s time.
Meanwhile, Dale Bhagwagar, official spokesperson of Babajee’s family, said that on the day the model committed suicide in her Khar residence, a post of her Facebook account from Vora read, “Adit and myself have been trying to call you to see if you are ok, please acknowledge, even if with a simple yes as a reply to this. Your phone is off. We are worried. Please get in touch asap.” (Sic)
Bhagwagar said Viveka’s family has requested Khar police to find out who Adit is, and if he should be questioned in the case. Also, if he should undergo the DNA tests just like Vora and Jobanputra.
However, Mangesh Pote, senior inspector at Khar police station, said, “We do not know who Adit is. Also, none of the family members or their spokesperson has approached us with a request to enquire about Adit.”
Vora and Jobanputra did not respond to calls and text messages seeking their comments.
