Mumbai: A court in Mumbai is expected to decide on Thursday whether to accept the plea of Indrani Mukerjea’s driver Shyamwar Rai, to turn an approver in the Sheena Bora murder case.

In its last hearing, the court had said it will hear all the proponents in the case before passing its order.

The CBI had earlier said it has no objection to Rai’s plea of turning approver and seeking pardon in the case.

“Subject to the condition that if the accused makes a full and true disclosure of all the facts of the crime, the prosecution has no objection to granting pardon to the accused,” the Hindustan Times quoted a reply from the CBI as saying.

Rai was arrested last year which led the police to unearth the murder.

On April 24, 2012, Peter Mukerjea’s wife Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and Rai had allegedly strangulated Indrani’s daughter Sheena.

Her body was disposed in a thickly-forested area in Raigad district of Maharashtra.

Indrani was arrested on August 25 last year.
