MUMBAI: Woman journalist Jigna Vora, arrested in connection with the murder of senior crime reporter J Dey, has moved a special MCOCA court seeking bail.

Vora was arrested on November 25 last year under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) on charges of providing key information like supplying licence plate number of the motorcycle and address of the slain journalist to underworld fugitive Chhota Rajan.

In the application, Vora has claimed that there was not a single outgoing call made by her to Rajan and it would therefore be wrong to state that she had instigated Rajan against Dey by speaking ill about him.

"A perusal of the print-outs would show that all the calls have been made by Rajan to her," Vora said in the application.

Though some of the journalists say that Rajan had informed them that Vora had instigated him against Dey, none of the journalists have produced any record of the calls made to them by Rajan, she said.

"There is no recorded interview of Rajan with these witnesses (journalists), wherein he (Rajan) has implicated Vora, nor there is any record to corroborate their statement that they had an occasion to speak to Rajan," the application said.

Vora further said that a call made to a friend of the accused Vinod Chembur is the only intercepted one on record.

"Though this witness alleges that Rajan informed him that Vora had instigated him against Dey and provided him the details, the same is not found in the said intercepted communication," contended the bail application.
