Viveka Babajee’s family has claimed that the former supermodel’s emails, chats and photographs with friend Gautam Vora indicate that the two were more than just friends as Vora has claimed.
The family has kept away the media but has, through spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar, alleged that Vora has been lying. “The family decided to released a statement after learning that Vora was denying having a relationship with Viveka,” Bhagwagar said at a press conference on Sunday.
Vora has been in trouble since police found an entry in her diary that read, ‘You killed me, Gautam Vora’ after the former Miss Mauritius committed suicide at her Khar apartment on June 25.
Viveka’s technical advisor helped her family access email account and her profile on a social networking site. The family claimed details it has found contradict Vora’s statement to the police and the court that he and Viveka were just friends.
The family distributed copies of photographs, emails and posts from Viveka’s social networking account to journalists to substantiate their claims that Viveka and Vora were in a relationship. The family also claims to have found some obscene photographs sent by Vora from his cell phone to Viveka’s email account.
The family claimed soon after Viveka committed suicide Vora deleted his account on the social networking site.
“Vora’s behaviour indicates that there is much more than what meets the eye,” the family’s latest statement said.
“He has told the police that Viveka was depressed due to her past relationships and financial problems which is not true.”
Viveka’s family claims that the fact that he is “lying and misguiding” the police and the media indicates that he is hiding something.
“They want Vora to approach the police and tell them the truth. The family wants to know the last conversation he had with Viveka after which she committed suicide,” Bhagwagar said.
The family claims that a few days before Viveka’s death she had been offered a modelling assignment she was very happy about.
She was also content with her relationship with Vora and her last few posts on the social networking site indicated that she was happy and not in depression, the family claimed.
