He was murdered in a gruesome killing in February, 2010 in Zagreb, Croatia. Sretko Kalinić, another Bojović associate, told Croatian police that he killed Simić and threw parts of his body into Lake Jarun in Zagreb. He provided no motive, and Bojović paid for Simić’s obituary in local newspapers. According to police findings Simić was in charge of keeping the well-known betting shop "Taš" in Belgrade, as well as renting houses used as hideouts. Simić smuggled narcotics for the Montenegrin criminal underworld, and there are indications that Simić shared part of the money earned from drug trafficking to help finance additional criminal activities of Bojović. Simić owned TAEDA group companies in Delaware, U.S., Serbia and Croatia in Bojović’s name. Ministry of Interior Serbia; Police scheme of Luka Bojović network;
Sretko Kalinić“Zver” (The “Beast”)Member of the Zemun ClanFeb. 25, 1974Sretko Kalinić was a member of the Zemun Clan and participated in many of the murders attributed to the group. He was also convicted of killing former Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Đinđić and is serving a 35-year prison sentence after being the first Serbian successfully extradited from Croatia to face trial.In all, he has admitted to at least 20 murders, is a sadistic killer and considered the most cruel person in the clan, according to cooperative witness testimony. “I've committed 20 murders in Serbia, Netherlands, Spain and one in Croatia,’’ he told Zagreb police, according to Croatian press reports. “I do not regret for anyone of them because they deserve it. They were fools.’’ He also gave police great detail of his methods, saying he chopped his victims and minced them in a meat grinder, then would either burn their remains or toss them in a river.On the day of the Đinđić assassination in 2003, Kalinić was armed and on the street with the late Mile Luković, one of the leaders of Zemun Clan. Kalinić was arrested in Croatia in June 2010. Days earlier, Miloš Simović, also member of Zemun Clan, shot him in Zagreb. Kalinić was hiding in Croatia using fake Croatian passports under the names on name “Cesar Drago” and "Milivoj Mandić". He was sentenced to 18 months in prison in Croatian court in Zagreb for possessing the false passports. After the Zemun Clan came under police pressure following the assassination of Đinđić, Bojović took over protection and leadership of Sretko Kalinić. Kalinić has worked for him ever since, and in February, 2011, the pair were charged with murder in Serbia, along with Vladimir Milosavljević, Miloš and Aleksandar Simović. They were also charged with the attempted murder of Andrija Drašković, leader of a feared criminal gang in Belgrade suspected of cigarette smuggling, narcotics and murder. According to Kalinić’s testimony in court, Bojović organized the attempt on Drašković to avenge the January, 2000 assassination of Željko Ražnatovih Arkan, the accused murderer and war criminal.Verdict against Zemun Clan, Special Court for the Fight Against Organized Crime, 18.01.2008.; Indictment of Prosecution for organized crime - 23.02.2011.

Two days before getting caught, he shot Sretko Kalinić, another accused member of Zemun Clan who was also hiding in Zagreb. As Simović described lately in the court, they were in bad relation last few years. “I shot at Kalinić on purpose to be caught and to serve the sentence on which I am sentenced,” Simović stated. He was sentenced in absentia to 30 years in prison for the assassination and 40 years in prison for other crimes as member of Zemun Clan. In court, Simović saidhis role was to follow Đinđić and share information between other conspirators. He also said that the assassination was a job he got and had to finish and didn’t want to reveal who was behind the order. “I was 23 years old at that time and now I am 32. I didn’t know what the Constitution was. For me killing PM Đinđić was like any other murder,” said Simović. Since the assassination, Simović worked for Bojović.
