Cops make little headway in ex-broker murder case

Patil said the person or people who entered Vora’s residence had noticed that he was alone at home that day,and might have barged in with the intention to loot the house.

Borivali police are yet to achieve a breakthrough in the murder case of a 50-year-old former stock broker. They scrutinised Vijay Vora’s call data records and found that he had received only one call in two days before he was killed on April 2.

Police tracked the call to a woman who organises prayer meets for which the victim used to donate large sums of money.

“The woman is from a Jain community group that organises prarthana sabhas,etc. She told us that she had called him casually as Vora was a devotee and donated generously,” said DCP (Zone 11) Mahesh Patil.

Patil said the person or people who entered Vora’s residence had noticed that he was alone at home that day,and might have barged in with the intention to loot the house.

“The robbers might have assumed that Vora had a stash of money in his house,” said Patil.

Vora’s wife Pallavi (47) told police that she was not know how much money he had kept at home. “The robbers may have taken more than the gold-plated idol,” said Patil.

Patil added that the police have ruled out personal enmity or property dispute as the motive behind the murder.

Vora and his wife had been staying at their Borivali west residence for the past three months. Based on the building watchman’s description,police have prepared sketches of the three men.
