Sheena was strangulated by Indrani, her ex-husband and driver, says Mumbai’s top cop


The exposure of spine-chilling murder of Sheena Bora two years ago is turning diabolical every hour with Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria confirming that Sheena was strangulated and then her body was burnt. He also confirmed that this act was performed by the three who have been arrested till now — Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai.

Meanwhile, Indrani’s ex-husband, Sanjeev Khanna has been arrested by Mumbai police in Kolkata.
A team from Mumbai police is in Guwahati currently investigating the place where Sheena Bora lived with her maternal grandparents until she gave her HSc Exams. Another team is at the crime scene in Raigad.
Indrani’s driver, a co-accused who was picked by police few days back in connection with the murder, too, was arrested on Tuesday. During interrogation, the driver claimed that Indrani had killed Bora and that he had helped her in disposing of the body by dumping it in the forests of Raigad district, an officer at Khar police station, who is part of the investigation team, said on condition of anonymity.

Maharashtra’s Raigad police had found remains of Bora in a forest following which a murder case was registered against unidentified persons.
“The case being more than two years old, where there isn’t any DNA sample of the deceased or appropriate remains of the body, police are only relying on co-accused’s statement,” the officer said.

Raigad police had come across an unidentified body, which they had disposed of without collecting DNA samples, he said. Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria had interrogated Indrani at Khar police station yesterday.
The officer said they would take the two accused to the spot where the body was dumped.
