Viveka's boyfriend seeks bail as police issue summons

June 28, 2010 15:43 IST

Apprehending arrest after police summoned him for questioning in connection with the suicide by his supermodel girlfriend Viveka Babajee, stock broker Gautam Vora on Monday moved a Mumbai court seeking anticipatory bail.

Vora, who is untraceable since 37-year-old Viveka ended her life on Friday evening by hanging herself from a ceiling fan at her residence in suburban Bandra, filed the anticipatory bail application at the sessions court on Monday morning.

Police had recovered several letters addressed to 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 for the last few months, had an argument a day before the supermodel, a former Miss Mauritius, committed suicide.

"We have summoned 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. Gautam has been referred to on several occasions in the model's diary," the official said, adding the summons was delivered on Sunday night.

A mobile phone, laptop, diary and a few letters addressed to Gautam Vora were among the various things that were recovered from her residence, police said.
