Mumbai: As Mumbai Police continues to probe the minute details of the high-profile Sheena Bora murder case, reports on Friday said that Indrani Mukerjea's daughter was pregnant, when she was allegedly murdered by her mother.
Reports claim that Sheena was few months pregnant with the baby of a person who was very close to Indrani, wife of former STAR India CEO Peter Mukerjea.
The man is said to have spent some intimate time with Sheena in Thailand. Initially, Indrani was unaware of the fact; however, later she got to know and confronted the person, who admitted to the relationship.
The person was not aware of the fact that Sheena was Indrani's daughter and not sister.
The murder mystery of Sheena Bora continues to unfold with stories of sleaze, betrayal and family feud.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria has maintained that 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.
However, the motive behind the murder remained a mystery even as the driver SP Rai and Sanjeev Khanna, a former husband of Indrani, are believed to have told police that wife of Peter, had done a recce of the place where the body was to be dumped a day before the murder on April 24, 2012.
Khanna, who had divorced Indrani, is believed to have told the Mumbai police in Kolkata that he was in the car in which Sheena was allegedly strangulated but claims to have had no role in the crime, as per PTI.
This apparently contradicted the arrested driver's claim before police that Indrani and Khanna had strangulated Sheena in the car after giving her a spiked drink in a hotel room in Mumbai.
Then the body was taken to Pen in Raigad taluk where it was burnt with petrol. Khanna had reportedly come to Mumbai on April 23, 2012, a day before the murder and took a flight back to Kolkata on February 25, according to police sources.
