`Mid Day scribe was shot from close range`
Mumbai: The postmortem report of senior crime reporter Jyotirmoy Dey, who was murdered in broad day light on Saturday, indicates that he was shot from close range.
The report also shows that five bullets hit him, of which, four hit him in the left chest and one was lodged under the right shoulder.
Dey was shot dead by motorcycle-borne killers in broad daylight in Mumbai`s central suburb of Powai on Saturday afternoon.
He was considered to be arguably India`s best-connected writer on the Mumbai underworld. He spent most of his reporting career bringing out accounts of the goings-on in the Mumbai underworld for several newspapers.
He also wrote a book titled ``Zero Dial: The Dangerous World of Informers`` and ``Khallas`` - considered a dictionary on the Mumbai underworld.
