Jamshedpur, Nov 14 (UNI) One person was arrested today in connection with the murder of shoe baron Ashish Dey, who was gunned down in broad daylight on November 2 at a market place in Sakchi here.
Briefing newspersons, Superintendent of Police Naveen Kumar Singh said one Jintender Singh was taken into police custody on the basis of circumstantial evidence.
Mr Singh, however, refused to divulge further details saying it would hamper the progess of the investigation.
He said as the case was very sensitive and complicated, the police for the first time had decided to conduct brain mapping, lie detection test and narco analysis of the arrested person and the suspect would be sent either to Bangalore or Ahmedabad for the tests.
Mr Singh said the motive of the murder would be clear only after the investigaton was over. The investigation was being conducted scientifically and systematically and could take another 10 to 15 days to find the truth, he said, adding ten separate police teams had been formed for the purpose.
Mr Dey, one of the owners of the multi-crore leather accessories Sreeleathers, also owned a hotel.
Although the police refused to divulge the reason of the murder, sources said they were zeroing in on the angle of extortions.
