Mumbai: The police custody of Indrani Mukerjea, wife of ex-TV honcho Peter Mukerjea, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai were extended by court till September 7 in connection with the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora.
With the police custody of the three accused came to an end today, they were produced before the court with Mumbai Police seeking extension of two more days.
The custody of the three accused was earlier extended till September 5 by the Bandra court after police sought extension of their custody for further interrogation during their last court appearance on August 31.
In yet another shocking revelation in the murder mystery, media reports claimed that Indrani had applied lipstick and combed Sheena's hair after her murder.
Indrani did that to avoid suspicion while traveling to the Pen forest in Raigad where her body was dumped.
It has also been reported that the accused Indrani and Khanna had placed Sheena's body between them in a 'sitting position' to avoid suspicion during police checks on the way.
In a breakthrough, Mumbai Police has recovered the hired car in which Sheena was strangulated to death.
Meanwhile, the skeletal remains recovered from the Raigad forest which have been recovered are suspected to be that of Sheena Bora.
Digital superimposition of the profile of Sheena Bora has matched with the skull recovered from a forest in the neighbouring Raigad district, Mumbai Police has said, the PTI reported.
"Digital superimposition of Sheena's profile has matched with the skull found in Raigad forest," a senior officer of Mumbai Police said yesterday evening.
According to a report in India Today quoting police officials, the skull, cheek bones match with Sheena's photo.
Peter Mukerjea, though not an accused, was questioned extensively yesterday at the Khar Police Station for the third day in a row in Sheena murder case.
Further, police had also found out that an employee of Indrani's company sent e-mails in Sheena's name after her murder, he said.
Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the case, Peter and others who have come under the investigators' scanner in the murky family saga faced day-long interrogation at the Khar Police Station yesterday.
Indrani and Sanjeev's daughter Vidhie, whom Peter has adopted, came to the police station for the first time yesterday and left in the evening after recording her statement.
On Thursday, the police had claimed that Indrani confessed to murdering Sheena.
Indrani was arrested by Mumbai Police on August 25 on charges of killing Sheena on April 24, 2012 along with her driver Shyam Rai and Khanna.
Sheena was killed on April 24, 2012 and her remains were discovered near the Pen forests on May 23, 2012.
