Phone records of Bharat Borge, the Airworks technician who was run over by a train, are being examined by the police in an attempt to understand why he went to the Vile Parle railway level crossing.
"As per his routine, Borge would board a train at Bhayander, where he resides, and alight at Santacruz after which he would go to his workplace. However, on the day of the incident, Borge seems to have alighted at Vile Parle and walked to the level crossing," Government Railway Police (Commissioner) A K Sharma told PTI.
The police are examining phone records to find out where Borge was going and if anyone had contacted him prior to his being run over by the train, he said.
Borge, a technician with Airworks who had found pebbles in the fuel tank of Anil Ambani's helicopter, was run over by a train on Tuesday at suburban Vile Parle.
The GRP has also questioned the Crime Branch official to whom Borge had written a letter in which he alleged that some "Reliance" officials had met him and taken his telephone number.
"We will also be recording the Crime Branch official's statement shortly," Sharma said.
Denying reports that any official from Anil Dhirubani Ambani Group (ADAG) had been called for questioning, Sharma said that no summons had been issued yet to employee of the industrial house.
However, he did not rule out that they could be called for questioning in the coming days.
The GRP has also recorded the statements of the motorman operating the train, a local resident and a person manning the railway crossing.
"From these persons statements it appears to be suicide," Sharma said.
"In their statements, the motorman of the train and others have stated that Borge had time to get away from the track but did not do so and seemed to crouch just before being hit," he added.
