Sheena Bora murder: Indrani Mukerjea to appear in court

Indrani Mukerjea, who is accused of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora in 2012, will be produced in a Mumbai court today along with two other accused, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna, and driver Shyam Rai.

The Mumbai Police is likely to seek extension of their custody today. Till now, twelve days have passed out of the permissible 14-days of police custody.

According to the police, digital superimposition of the profile of Sheena Bora has matched with the skull recovered from a forest in Raigad district. The matching of digital superimposition with skull would be vital in establishing that the human remains found in the forest in Pen tehsil of Raigad district are of Sheena, the daughter of Indrani Mukerjea.

Media baron Peter Mukerjea, who is the current husband of Indrani, was interrogated extensively yesterday at the Khar Police Station for the third consecutive day in Sheena murder case. The police are also investigating Indrani and Peter's financial transactions.

A police officer said that the car used to take Sheena's body to Raigad has been recovered and traced to a third-party owner. We have also found that an employee of Indrani's company sent e-mails in Sheena's name after her murder, he said.

Yesterday, Vidhie, who is Indrani and Sanjeev's daughter, whom Peter has adopted, came to the police station for the first time, and left in the evening after recording her statement.
