CBI on Monday sought further time to file charge sheet against the gangster Chhota Rajan in the journalist J Dey murder case but a special court gave the agency the deadline of August 5.

Special MCOCA court judge S S Adkar directed CBI to file the charge sheet latest by August 5.

Adjourning the hearing till then, the court said it would go ahead with framing of charges as per the charge sheet earlier filed by Mumbai Police’s Crime Branch if the agency failed to do so.

Special Public Prosecutor Bharat Badami informed the court that the agency had got some more evidence against wanted accused Nayan Singh Bisht, and will be annexing it to the charge sheet.

Rajan was arrested at Bali airport in Indonesia on October 25 last year and deported to India.

He is facing around 70 cases in Maharashtra, which include the J Dey murder case of 2011. Maharashtra government has handed over all these cases to CBI.

Dey, a veteran crime reporter, was shot dead in suburban Powai on June 11, 2011, allegedly at the behest of Rajan.

According to investigators, Rajan was upset with certain articles written by Dey about him.
