Sheena Bora Murder: Indrani Taken Worli Residence


Mumbai: To recreate the crime scene, Mumbai police on Sunday took Indrani Mukherjee, the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case to her Worli residence from Khar police station.

Sheena’s mother Indrani was taken to Worli shortly before 4 pm while two others accused, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and former driver Shayamvar Rai, were grilled at Khar police station. During the over 60-minute quest when the cops and Indrani were at the Mukerjea’s Worli house, she was taken to her fourth floor residence.

She was also seen gesturing to the accompanying policemen in the direction of a garage in the residential premises, which, according to police is the place where Sheena’s body was kept on the day she was killed.

Indrani was brought to Khar police station around 11.30 am, where investigators trying to further unravel the murder mystery quizzed her.

Indrani’s former driver Shyam Rai told police during interrogation that Indrani not only conspired to kill her daughter but also gave lucrative offers to execute her plans. Rai claimed that he was paid Rs 1.5 lakh in three installments by Indrani. She also offered him a good job opportunity.

A local court had on Saturday extended police custody of all the three accused till September 6. The three accused have been arrested on charges of murdering Sheena and disposing of the body in a Raigad forest in April 2012.

Police are awaiting forensic results of samples of the skeletal remains found in Raigad forest where Sheena’s body was allegedly dumped.

Police had on Thursday claimed that Indrani had confessed to murdering Sheena and were now also investigating if someone else could have been involved in the alleged murder. Indrani, who was produced in the court on Saturday, remained calm and composed through the hearing.
