Kolkata: As investigators toddle through a complex web of lies and deceit in the Sheena Bora murder case, Siddhartha Das, her biological father came out in the pen and accused Indrani of murdering Sheena.
Das on Tuesday cleared all speculations about his relationship with Indrani, wife of former STAR India CEO Peter Mukerjea and the main suspect in the case. While assuring all help to the investigators, Das admitted that he was in a live-in relationship with Indrani way back in 1980s and Mikhail Bora and Sheena were his biological children.
When he was asked as to what punishment he would seek for Indrani if it was proved that she murdered Sheena, Das replied, “I want her to be hanged if she killed Sheena…. I am feeling very heartbroken.”
Putting an end to all speculations, Das who was earlier reported to be Indrani Mukerjea’s first husband, also admitted of staying with Indrani at her residence in Guwahati, but he completely rejected reports of his marriage with her.
“I never married Indrani officially. I met Indrani in college in 1986. She left me in 1989. Maybe Indrani wasn’t satisfied with my state as I did not have a job then,” Das said in Kolkata, coming out in the open for the first time since the case grabbed headlines with the arrest of Indrani.
He further said that Indrani had left him in 1989 and they had not been in touch since then. Das said he came to know about the “murder through newspapers” and was ready to cooperate in the investigation.
Das, a factory worker in Kolkata, said he was ready for a DNA test. Replying to a question whether Indrani could have murdered Sheena, Das said, “I believe Indrani could do this”.
Indrani is facing fresh charges of poisoning and attempting to murder her son Mikhail on the day her daughter Sheena was killed more than three years ago as police suspect involvement of people outside the state in the sensational crime.
