Mumbai: Amid numerous twists and turns in the Sheena Bora murder case that has gripped the country, prime accused Indrani Mukerjea has stunned everyone by claiming her daughter is alive and is living in the United States.
As per a report on NDTV, Indrani has told Mumbai Police during interrogation that her 24-year-old daughter from first marriage, believed to have been murdered by her, is not dead and is staying in the US where she had shifted in 2012 for higher studies.
But why is she then not coming forward to save her mother who is in jail for her 'murder'? Because she hates her, is what Indrani is believed to have told the police.
The report quoted police sources as saying that Indrani has stuck to this assertion and is proving to be "tough to crack".
Indrani, wife of former media baron Peter Mukerjea, has ben accused of murdering her daughter Sheena with help from Sheena's step-father Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyamvar Rai on April 24, 2012.
The body was later taken to a forest on the outskirts of Mumbai and burnt.
Sheena's brother Mikhail has alleged that he was Indrani's next target after Sheena.
The police has still not been able to establish the motive behind the murder.
