Dey, a senior investigative journalist from MiD-DAY newspaper, was brutally shot dead by four bike-borne men on Saturday, Jun 11. As this came as a tremendous shock to the Mumbai media fraternity, the Mumbai Police has been under extreme pressure now after the journalists carried out a procession on Monday, Jun 13.
T K Dwivedi, a Mumbai journalist and one of Dey's collegue accused Anil Mahabole as he threatened him inside the goverment railway police lock-up room. Hence, Dwivedi had lodged a separate complaint in this regard and the matter is being investigated.
In fact Mahabole, few years back threatened Dey as he had raised Mahabole's name as one of the Mumbai police officers having connections with underworld mafia don, Dawood Ibrahim's gang as revealed by Dwivedi.
In the recent interrogation, Mahabole denied his alleged involvement with underworld. He even said that he shared a good relation with Dey. Also it has been three long years he met Dey. Mahabole denied reports that he has been transferred after Mr Dey's death as ACP.
He adds, "Dey was a senior person and I had high regard for him." The media has been forcing the Mumbai police to investigate the case in a faster pace, meanwhile, the alleged role of Mumbai's top cop has raised more controversies and tension over the Mumbai Police.
