Mumbai: A Mumbai court on Monday made Sheena Bora murder case prime accused Indrani Mukerjea’s former driver Shyamvar Rai an approver.
Rai, whose arrest last year led the police to unearth Sheenas murder, had on May 11 told a special CBI court that he wants to turn approver in the case and sought pardon. Rai had, in the first week of May, forwarded a two-page letter to the special CBI court stating his intention to reveal details of how Sheena was murdered.
On April 24, 2012, Indrani, Khanna and Rai had allegedly strangulated Sheena, and later disposed of her body in a thickly forested area in Gagode village of Raigad district, according to the Khar police. The murder came to light after Rais arrest by the Khar police in an Arms Act case. Indrani was arrested on August 25 last year. The CBI arrested Peter a few months later.
The case was initially probed by the Khar police, but after a lot of controversies during investigations, it was transferred to the CBI on the request of the Maharashtra government.
