Sheena Bora murder case: Brother Mikhail to reach Mumbai
Mumbai: More details are likely to emerge in the Sheena Bora murder mystery today, with her brother Mikhail flying from Guwahati to Mumbai where he may be quizzed by police.
Sanjeev Khanna, former husband of accused and Sheena’s mother Indrani Mukherjea, who is the wife of former STAR CEO Peter Mukherjea, is also likely to be produced before a Mumbai court today, police said.
Mikhail had earlier told the media that he has evidence on the murder of Sheena. He also told newsmen outside the house, where he lives with his maternal grandparents in Guwahati, that he feared he would be the next target.
A Mumbai Police team had earlier visited the maternal home of Indrani and talked to Sheena’s brother Mikhail.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria, after a day-long grilling of Indrani, her driver and step son Rahul Mukherjea at suburban Khar police station, said late last night that police have a ‘fair idea’ about the motive for the murder, but declined to elaborate saying the “third accused” (Sanjeev Khanna) was yet to be interrogated.
“We have a fair idea of the motive of the murder. However, the third accused (Khanna, a former husband of Sheena’s mother Indrani Mukherjea) is yet to reach Mumbai and to be interrogated. Only then, we will be able to tell you about the motive,” Maria said.
To a question whether the police had confirmed if Sheena was Indrani’s sister (as the latter had made people believe) or her daughter, Maria said “Sheena is the daughter of the lady accused.”
The Mumbai Police questioning Indrani’s second husband Sanjeev Khanna have told a Kolkata court that he was involved not only in the murder of the media baron’s daughter Sheena Bora on April 24, 2012, but also with its planning.
The submission made by Mumbai police at the Alipore court claimed Indrani had told them how she had recceed Raigad’s Pen area with her driver Shyam Rai on April 23 to “identify the exact spot where to dispose of the body.”
Khanna has claimed that he had climbed into the SUV driven by Shyam along with Indrani, but had dozed off a few minutes later. He claimed that when he woke up he found Sheena dead near him.
Alipore city court yesterday granted Mumbai police Khanna’s five-day remand after rejecting his bail plea.
