Apprehending arrest after police summoned him for questioning in connection with the suicide by his supermodel girlfriend Viveka Babajee, stock broker Gautam Vora today moved a local court seeking anticipatory bail.
Mr. Vora, who has been untraceable since 37-year-old Viveka was found dead, hanging from a ceiling fan at her residence in suburban Bandra, filed the anticipatory bail application at the sessions court this morning.
Police had recovered several letters addressed to Mr. Gautam during a search at her apartment. “You killed me Gautam,” Viveka had jotted down in her diary, police said.
Sources said Viveka and Gautam, who were seeing each other over the last few months, had an argument a day before the supermodel, a former Miss Mauritius, allegedly committed suicide.
“We have summoned Mr. Gautam. The summons have been delivered at his Napean Sea Road residence in South Mumbai,” a senior police officer said.
“His questioning will help us unfold the mystery behind the suicide. Mr. Gautam has been referred to on several occasions in the model’s diary,” the official said, adding the summons was delivered last night.
A mobile phone, laptop, diary and a few letters addressed to Mr. Gautam Vora were among the various things that were recovered from her residence, police said.
