Jamshedpur :The police are probing into the animosity angle between the murder of Tata Motors’AGM Brajesh Sahay and ancillary units who supply spare parts for commercial vehicle.
Since last four-five months, the company had adopted strict measures on scrutiny of credentials of supply vendors and only if they had local factories they were given supply orders.
“Earlier, suppliers used to procure goods from other big cities like Delhi and Pune and supply it to the company showing some of the sick and abandoned units in Adityapur industrial area as their own by hoodwinking officials. But this has practically come to an end for last few months.
Brajesh Sahay was one of the key executives imple-menting this directive of the company. He might have earned wrath of influential suppliers. The manner in which the murder has been committed gives enough indication of involvement of professional criminals hired for this purpose,” said a senior police official preferring anonymity.
The team is focussing on cracking the password of slain Tata Motors executive’s laptop. Sources went on to inform that the investigating team is pinning hopes on the laptop to grab
substantial clues. A senior officer in the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) who is assisting the district police in the probe said that the password of the murder victim’s laptop will provide a vital clue to the people behind the murder.
” We are yet to scan the laptop once we get the password we would be in posi-tion to study the conversation of the executive,” said a team member.
Brajesh Sahay (40) assistant general manager, TML Drivelines (a subsidiary of Tata Motors) was shot dead down by unidentified assailants in front of his at Nildih under Telco police station
in the night or February 22. City SP, Karthik S claimed that the probe into the Sahay murder
case is moving in the right direction and they are hopeful to crack it soon.
“The investigation into the murder case is on. We are hopeful of getting a breakthrough in the case shortly,” said Karthik, but declined to say anything further.
