Sheena Bora murder case: Indrani, Peter Mukerjea charged with murder, criminal conspiracy

In the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, the Mumbai Sessions Court on Tuesday framed charges against Indrani Mukerjea, her husband Peter Mukerjea and her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna for allegedly murdering Sheena and disposing off her body.

The court has charged Indrani and the others with murder, conspiracy and destruction of evidence.

Also, Indrani and Sanjeev have been charged with attempt to murder.

The accused did not plead guilty to the charges and decided to face the trial.

While the fourth accused Shyamwar Rai, the Indrani's driver, has not been prosecuted since he has already turned an approver in the case and is helping the prosecution.

The alleged murder of Sheena Bora came to light in 2015 when Shyamwar Rai, employed by the Mukerjeas, confessed to the police that he assisted Indrani in committing the crime.

Sheena was allegedly strangled to death by Indrani with the help of her former husband Sanjeev Khanna. She was killed for entering into a relationship with Peter's son from an earlier marriage.

The matter has been adjourned to February 1.
