Mumbai:  A fresh police complaint was registered on Tuesday by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the murder of senior crime journalist Jyotirmoy Dey.

The CBI in a statement said, "Further investigation will be conducted against the accused persons including one recently deported from Indonesia."

On Monday, the Bombay High Court had designated a special court for conducting the trials of cases in which Chhota Rajan is an accused.

The first chargesheet named the arrested accused Satish Kaliya, Abhijeet Shinde, Arun Dake, Sachin Gaikwad, Anil Waghmode, Nilesh Shendge, Mangesh Agawane, Vinod Asrani, Paulson Joseph and Deepak Sisodia. Vinod Asrani alias Vinod Chembur died during the trial.
