Mumbai: As the sensational murder of Indrani Mukerjea's daughter Sheena Bora grabs headlines, the moot question which still continues to haunt is, what was the motive behind the brutal crime?
While there are many speculations doing the round, here are some theories which could be the motives behind Sheena's murder.
With Indrani Mukherjea's husband and former STAR CEO Peter Mukherjea claiming that Sheena and Mikhail were introduced to him as Indrani's siblings by her, there is a big possibility that Sheena was threatening her mother to reveal the truth to Peter that she was infact her daughter and not sister.
Another reason could be that Indrani was upset over Sheena's affair with Peter Mukherjea's son Rahul. Peter made a stunning disclosure on Wednesday that Sheena had an affair with his son Rahul but he wasn't aware that Sheena was in reality Indrani's daughter and not her sister.
The third reason could be that Indrani and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna could have reunited and planned to kill Sheena and Mikhail so that Vidhie (Indrani and Sanjeev's daughter) would get the lion's share of Indrani's property. Reports claim that Vidhie has been adopted by Peter.
Peter Mukherjea and his son Rahul are likely to be questioned again on Thursday in connection with the murder of Sheena Bora.
On Wednesday, the three-year-old murder of Sheena Bora - Indrani's daughter from her first marriage - unfolded with stories of sleaze, betrayal and family feud.
Late in the evening, police arrested a former husband of Indrani, the wife of former media honcho Peter Mukherjea. Indrani was arested by the Mumbai Police on Tuesday night.
As the until now closely held secrets became public knowledge, Mumbai Police arrested Sanjeev Khanna, a former husband of Indrani, in Kolkata on Wednesday.
In Guwahati, Indrani's son Mikhail Bora revealed that Sheena was his sister, that Indrani had mothered both of them and this could be easily be proved by a DNA test.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria said Sheena was murdered on April 24, 2012. Her body was found on May 23 that year after Indrani's driver Shyam Rai revealed the murder site to police.
Both Indrani and the driver were arrested on Tuesday on charges of killing Sheena and disposing off her body in Raigad, near Mumbai. A court sent Indrani to police custody till August 31.
