Fifteen days after MiD DAY veteran crime reporter Jyotirmoy Dey was murdered, the Mumbai Police remain clueless and red-faced to reporters questions
According to police sources more than 300 policemen have been deployed to solve the murder and more than 175 suspects including oil mafia Mohammad Ali and Sadaruddin Shaikh have been interrogated. Sources revealed that police also picked up 12 sharp shooters who were recently released on bail.
Despite Home Minister Raosaheb Ramrao Patil’s claim on the day of the shootout that investigations would bring a breakthrough within 48 hours, police officials have no new leads.
