The Karan Kakkad and Arun Tikku murder case has opened the cans of worms. In a new theory, the police sources suspect that model Simran Sood, associate of main accused Vijay Palande could have been responsible for abetting another famous International ramp model Viveka Babajee to death.
As per the statements given to Mumbai Crime Branch by Vijay Palande alias Karan Sood, the 37 year old model turned small time actress Simran Sood was allegedly in a relationship with financial stock broker and socialite Gautam Vora.
Palande claims that he got married to Sapna alias Simran Sood in 1999 in an Arya Samaj ceremony and while in Jail in 2005, Palande learnt of Simran’s alleged affair with Vora. While sources said Simran’s relationship with Vora was still strong and the financial broker was also summoned by the Mumbai Police but has been untraceable.
The 37-year-old former supermodel Viveka Babajee was found hanging from the ceiling in her Pali Hill flat in 2010. Popularly known for her Kamasutra print campaign Viveka’s family had accused her boyfriend Vora of abetting her to commit suicide.
Viveka's daily personal dairy which was confiscated by the Khar police station then, after her death allegedly mentioned of her friendship going kaput with Vora.
Viveka's family spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar, who handled the media for the case after her demise says, "According to Viveka's mother Gautam had discussed marriage with Viveka and that they had even matched their horoscopes." "Something might have gone terribly wrong between them, when Gautam visited her flat one night in June 2010. Because next day, Viveka's body was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her Bandra flat," he added.
"Whether this was connected to another relation Gautam had or not, only he can reveal," Dale concluded.
Ironically, three weeks after Babajee’s death the Khar police opted to shut the case and gave clean chit to Vora, ex-boyfriends Kartik Jobaputra and Rohit Jugraj, and seven others questioned in the case. An officer from the Crime Branch on the basis anonymity said, “Palande has been changing his statements and also contradicting them. So if he reveals that Simran had an affair with Gautam Vora were are probing to authenticate it”.
