Seven years after the sensational murder of senior crime journalist Jyotirmay Dey, the MCOCA court today convicted underworld don Chhota Rajan in the case.
The court convicted journalists Jigna Vora and Paulson Joseph in the case.
The court found Rajan guilty of ordering the murder of J Dey.
It’s over, finally – those were the words of Jigna Vora after she was acquitted in journalist Jyotirmay Dey murder case today.
Vora said that she was ‘happy to be proven innocent.’
Vora, the then deputy chief of bureau of Asian Age, was arrested on November 25, 2011, for her alleged complicity in the murder of journalist J Dey, who was Editor (Investigations) with Mid-Day.
Vora wearing lot of beads on a right hand was seen weeping in the court room soon after the acquittal.
She refused to speak anything more, and kept suggesting that ‘I don’t want to talk.’ ‘Dey was far too senior and Vora far too junior for them to have any rivalry,’ serious journalist Sachin Kalbag was quoted as saying by India Today.
Apart from Vora, another journalist Paulson Joseph was also acquitted in the case.
