Several high-profile people were earlier named as accused in the case, including mafia don Rajendra S. Nikhalje alias Chhota Rajan, currently lodged in Tihar Central Jail in New Delhi, and former Mumbai journalist Jigna Vora.

The final arguments in the Special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Court had started in February and concluded early last month. According to investigators, Chhota Rajan ordered the killing of Dey, a veteran crime reporter of Mumbai. The mafia don was deported from Indonesia’s Bali in November 2015 and subsequently made an accused in the case. Dey, 56, was the Editor (Investigations) of Midday eveninger, and was shot dead on June 11, 2011, near his Powai residence in central suburban Mumbai, sending shockwaves in the media circles across the country.

Dey had authored two books: “Khallas: An A to Z Guide to the Underworld”, and “Zero Dial: The Dangerous World of Informers”, and was penning his third book, “Chindi: Rags to Riches”. He had reportedly portrayed the mafia don as ‘Chindi’ (petty) in his upcoming book, which apparently irked Chhota Rajan.
