The Special court of Maharashtra
Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) on Friday remanded an
accused in police custody for allegedly providing the weapon
used for killing senior crime reporter J Dey till July 28.
After arresting seven suspects in connection with the murder of senior journalist J Dey, Mumbai Police is consulting a US firm to enhance quality of the CCTV footage that show assailants trailing the scribe on the fateful day.
Police probing the killing of
senior crime reporter J Dey suspect that the weapon
and bullets used in the murder might have been smuggled from
Nepal by a middle man, who handed them over to one of the
gunmen at Nainital.
Expressing "deep concern" that
no headway has been made in the probe into the killing of
journalist J Dey, BJP on Wednesday demanded that the case be handed
over to the CBI for an "unbiased" investigation.
Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil
on Saturday said the government has taken the killing of senior
journalist J Dey "very seriously" and senior police officials
have been asked to immediately nab the culprits.
