A special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court on Thursday granted permission to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take voice sample of gangster Chhota Rajan in connection with journalist Jyotirmoy Dey murder case.
Rajan has agreed for the same.
Earlier, the court sought Rajan’s reply regarding the CBI’s plea to obtain permission to collect the underworld don’s voice sample.
Rajan, a former key aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, was arrested at the Bali airport in Indonesia on October 25 after he arrived from Australia, and was later deported to India.
He is facing around 70 cases in Maharashtra, which includes the J Dey murder case.
Dey, a veteran crime reporter, was shot dead in Powai by motorcycle-borne shooters on June 11, 2011 allegedly at the command of Rajan.
