MUMBAI: The sensational Sheena Bora murder case took another turn on Sunday when police seized a suitcase that was purportedly meant for packing the body of her brother, whom Indrani Mukerjea had allegedly planned to kill, even as key accused Sanjeev Khanna and the driver were taken to spot to recreate the crime scene.
Officials were tight-lipped about the progress in the probe amidst reports that Indrani and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna had been making contradictory claims about who killed her daughter Sheena three years ago.
The new twist in the probe came when Sheena’s brother Mikhail claimed that their mother Indrani had planned to kill him also on April 23, 2012, when she had given him a spiked drink.
The same day Sheena was allegedly killed by Indrani and Khanna in a car with the help of the driver Shyam Rai. The three had carried the body and disposed it in Pen tehsil in Raigad district the next day.
The seizure of the suitcase from residential premises of Indrani and Peter Mukerjea in Mumbai’s Worli area apparently lends credence to Mikail’s claim about his mother’s plan to kill him and pack his body parts but there was no police confirmation of this theory.
