others was extended," the official added.
Dey, editor (Investigations) with the city-based English
tabloid, Mid Day, was shot dead by four motorcycle-borne
assailants in suburban Powai on June 11, police said.
Police had claimed that the scribe was eliminated at the

a deputy police commissioner, suspended as the cops, were
caught on camera partying with the gangsters.
