Sheena Bora murder case: I know I am in trouble, says Sanjeev Khanna

Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea's former husband Sanjeev Khanna, an accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, thinks he would come out of the trouble.

A reporter associated with The Telegraph managed to strike a conversation with Khanna, who was sitting in the departure lounge at an airport with cops nearby.

Wearing a black round-neck T-shirt, greenish track pants and a pair of slippers, Khanna told the reporter: "I know I am in trouble... but I will get out of it.”

Khanna, who was taken to Kolkata to corroborate some crucial evidence in the case, was brought back to Mumbai last night, police said.

Khanna, Indrani and her former driver Shyamvar Rai have been arrested on charges of murdering Sheena and disposing of the body at Pen forest in Maharashtra's Raigad district in April 2012.

According to police, Sheena was murdered on April 24, 2012.

Police claimed that they have recovered the shoes from Kolkata that were used by the accused when they went to dump the body in Pen forest.

Earlier, in a major breakthrough, police claimed that the DNA tests conducted by Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) established that the skeletal remains found at Pen in 2012 were of Sheena. The FSL report was sent to police yesterday.

FSL officials said that the DNA extracted from the skeletal remains matched with that of Indrani and Sheena's brother Mikhail Bora.

Shyamvar Rai, who worked for Indrani as driver in 2012, had told the police during interrogation that he, along with Indrani and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, had killed Sheena, burnt her body and dumped the remains in a forest off Pen-Khopoli highway from where police retrieved the samples.

Police have also extensively grilled Indrani's husband Peter Mukerjea, though he is not an accused in the case so far.
