Journalists lambast police for Dey's murder

"We condemn the killing of J Dey. He tried to expose the police-underworld nexus and with those revelations, today he became a victim. The city is driven by police and underworld and no law and order exists," Prasad Mokashi, President, Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh said.
"We demand resignation of Commissioner of Police as he couldn't curb the crime rate in the city," Mokashi said.

"With the murder of J Dey, it has been proven that police-underworld nexus exists in the city. He had put out several stories on Dawood Ibrahim, Chotta Rajan and others," said Shashikant Sandhbor, President, Television Journalists Association.

"We demand that the Home Ministry should conduct a thorough investigation. Also, it should come up with a report on the past cases where journalists have been attacked and status of probe," Sandhbor said.

"A proper investigation should be conducted into this dastardly murder. Crime reporters should be protected," Aniket Joshi, President, Mantralaya and Vidhi Mandal Varthahar Sangh, said.
