Mumbai: One mysterious call, started it all.
The Sheena Bora murder mystery, that has now snowballed into a complex and multi-layered saga churning out murkier twists every day, was first brought to the notice of police when an anonymous caller dialled up Mumbai police, dishing out crucial information that Sheena Bora was murdered, possibly by her own mother.
According to a report in the Quint, a police investigation on the antecedents of the anonymous caller from Meerut, indicated that he was linked to INX Media, a company founded by the Mukerjeas(Indrani and Peter).
The report which cites police sources, adds that the anonymous caller was one of the proxies, who received a portion of moolah distributed the Mukerjeas after the company INX Media was liquidated.
In another key revelation, it has surfaced that Indrani's first husband Siddhartha Das, may have fled to Bangladesh on or around August 19, I.e, just two days before the police received the tip off, reported the Quint.
It can be noted that Siddhartha's relatives claimed that he had not been in touch with Indrani for last 10 years.
However, the Quint report raises a big question on why Siddhartha went “underground” on August 19, just six days before Indrani Mukerjea was arrested.
The report speculates that it might be Das, who tipped off police.
On the other hand, a report in the DNA says that it was not a caller but a high-flying socialite who gave the first tip-off to a Mumbai-based senior Indian Police Service officer at a high-profile party three months ago.
The report adds that the socialite had been in the know of things about the Mukerjea family for the last few years and was a familiar face in the Mumbai and Delhi party circles.
