After grilling stock analyst Gautam Vora twice, police probing the mysterious death of supermodel Viveka Babajee will question him again to try to "connect missing dots" in the case.
Police have so far recorded statements of the model's family members, friends, 'boyfriend' Vora and her ex-boyfriend Kartik Jobanputra in a bid to ascertain the reason that triggered her to allegedly commit suicide.
However, they are still to come to a conclusion, a senior police official said on condition of anonymity.
"We want to call Gautam for questioning again soon. It would help us to connect the missing dots and come to a right conclusion," the official said.
According to the official, there was no substantial evidence to charge Vora with abetment to suicide of the model and a mere line that 'you killed me Gautam' in Babajee's diary was not enough to say he was the reason for her suicide.
When contacted Vora's lawyer Rajendra Sorankar said, "Vora had fully cooperated with police when he was called for questioning earlier. He would continue to cooperate with them in case he is asked to appear before them."
37-year-old Babajee, a former Miss Mauritius, was found hanging from the ceiling at her Continental Towers flat in suburban Bandra on June 25.
Fearing arrest on the charge of abetting Babajee's suicide as he had a heated argument with the model a day before her death, Vora had approached a local court last week for bail.
The court had restrained police from arresting Vora on the charge of abetment to suicide without giving him a 72-hour prior notice.
During his previous questioning, Vora had told police that he and Babajee were just friends and there was nothing more than that.
However, Babajee's family claimed Vora and the model were in a relationship and released photographs, Internet text messages exchanged between the duo and asked Vora to "come out with all truth about Babajee".
