The latest expose was brought out by an English newspaper which established the sinister connection with the UK drug lord and the journo's death with the police also believing the same. They consider the drug lord must have ordered Dey's death.
The drug lord also finds mention in India's most wanted list. In spite of many attempts to extradite him, all efforts have been unsuccessful, since India has not been able to present a watertight case to UK officials.
The Indian investigative officials have apparently got vital clues in the murder case after accessing his e-mails and other personal communication. It is believed that the police has found details which suggest that he was in communication with a drug baron for a story he was doing in the capacity of Editor (Investigations) at Mid-Day newspaper.
The expose also mentioned that Dey travelled to London in May to probably meet the drug lord with the intention of exposing a major drug racket. With a suspected involvement of Dawood Ibrahim and the D-company, the police have floated many theories with no solid backing to establish the truth.
The Bombay High Court had given an ultimatum to the police to present its report by July 6 to ascertain the progress made in the investigations. After repeated requests, the case has not yet been handed over to the CBI.
