Mumbai: After saying mum for nearly a week, Indrani Mukerjea, the former media tycoon has finally admitted to have played a role in the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora, media reports said on Wednesday.

According to a report published in 'The Times of India', which quoted Mumbai Police sources close to the investigation into the Sheena Bora murder case, Indrani has finally confessed his role in the crime.

Till recently, Indrani, who broke down after briefly meeting her other daughter Vidhie at Bandra court on Monday, had been maintaining that Sheena was very much alive and staying in the US.

"There are a few discrepancies in her story and we are now piecing together the jigsaw of the roles of each of the three accused," an officer was quoted as saying.

The development comes soon after she was produced along with her two accomplices - ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and former driver Shyamvar Rai - before the metropolitan magistrate for extension of police custody.

Indrani, who also met her lawyers and Vidhie, is believed to have learnt that her co-accused have already confessed to their part in the crime.

However, she categorically denied that she intended to kill Mikhail.

She also did not reveal any motive for killing Sheena. "While she has admitted to the crime she has not given us any particular motive behind the murder. She is in our custody for three more days and we hope to learn everything by then," the officer added.

Thye Mumbai Police today grilled her husband Peter Mukerjea and will also bring Indrani face-to-face with him to extract more information.

Last week Peter's preliminary statement was recorded and police are yet to record his detailed statement, which police said will help them join the dots of the crime.

A Mumbai Police team is also in Kolkata to bring Siddharth Das to Mumbai for a DNA test to establish the identity of the remains recovered from Raigad.

Das, believed to be Indrani's first husband, had claimed that he was Indrani's live-in partner and fathered both Sheena and Mikhail.
