Mumbai, Mon, 18 Jul 2011 ANI

Mumbai, July 18 (ANI): The Bombay High Court today dismissed petitions seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the murder case of Mid-Day crime reporter Jyotirmoy Dey.


Justices Ranjana Desai and R V More, however, did not pronounce the reasons in the operative part of their judgement for dismissing the petitions, Doordarshan reports.


The verdict of the court came in the wake of petitions filed by advocate V P Patil, Mumbai Press Club, Marathi Patrakar Parishad and former scribes S Balakrishna and Ketan Tirodkar demanding a CBI probe into the case.


The crime branch of the Mumbai police, which is presently probing the case, has so far taken eight people into its custody.


Dey was shot dead by unidentified men outside a shopping mall in Powai, a Mumbai suburb on June 11.


The post-mortem report of Dey indicated that he was shot from close range. The report also shows that five bullets hit him, of which, four hit him in the left chest and one was lodged under the right shoulder


Jyotirmoy Dey was India's best-connected writer on the Mumbai underworld. He spent most of his reporting career bringing out accounts of the goings-on in the Mumbai underworld for several newspapers.


He also wrote a book titled 'Zero Dial: The Dangerous World of Informers' and 'Khallas' - considered a dictionary on the Mumbai underworld. (ANI)
