New Delhi: In a new twist to the Jyotirmoy Dey murder case, reports on Wednesday suggested that part of the plot could have been hatched in Delhi.
Sources claimed that the money given to shooter Satish Kalia and his men to kill Dey was handed over in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk area.
Sources further said the weapon used to shoot Dey in broad daylight on the streets of Powai on June 11, was procured in Haldwani in Uttarakhand and was brought to Mumbai via Delhi.
Satish Kalia, along with other men involved in Dey’s murder, went to Haldwani from Delhi to procure the murder weapon. According to sources, they went back to Delhi first to seek more information on their target and then travelled to Mumbai. It took the gang a few weeks and a lot of planning in Mumbai to locate their target, observe his timings and his daily schedule. They eventually came out with a plan and ultimately executed it by shooting Dey in broad daylight.
Following the emergence of this piece of information, doubts have been raised on the Mumbai Police’s theory, as to why was it that Kalia and the others had to go a long way to Uttarakhand to procure their weapon and not from a nearby source.
