New revelations have been tumbling out everyday in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case.
Mumbai: New revelations have been tumbling out everyday in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case.
With the Muimbai Police, who are investigating the case, questioning all the three accused at length and working to establish motive for the crime, stories have been doing the rounds as to how the murder was executed.
Sheena's mother, Indrani Mukerjea, is an accused in the murder case, along with tow others and was arrested on August 25 by the Mumbai Police.
As per a report in Mid Day, Indrani may have studied the Arun Tikku and Karan Kakkad murder cases to plan as to kill her daughter Sheena.
The double murder hit the headlines in 2012.
The report quoted police sources as saying that the plan to burn Sheena's body and the decision to not hire contract killer, may have been taken from the double murders.
Further, Indrani may have studied another murderer, Vijay Palande, to know as to what should and shouldn’t be done while committing the crime.
Karan Kakkad and Arun Tikku were killed by contract killer Vijay Palande.
Palande killed Karan, an aspiring film producer and a resident of Oberoi Spring Fields, Oshiwara, on April 3 2012.
Earlier, he had allegedly killed Arun Tikku, a senior citizen.
This was reportedly to capture his flats in Andheri.
Palande was arrested on April 11 for the murder of Tikku.
Later it was revealed that Palande had also killed Kakkad.
The report quotes an unnamed police officer as saying that when Indrani had initially planned to kill her daughter, she had decided to hire a contact killer.
Later when she got to know about Palande, who was contract killer, getting arrested by the police, she dropped the idea.
And when she learnt about Kakkad’s chopped-up body being thrown in Chiplun by Palande, Indrani decided to burn Sheena's body in order to erase evidence.
Meanwhile, former Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea, husband of Indrani, underwent a fresh round of questioning today, as per PTI.
Peter was questioned for nearly 12 hours till late last night in connection with the case.
Shena Bora was engaged to Rahul, Peter's son from an earlier marriage, when she was allegedly murdered on April 24, 2012.
The 24-year-old was allegedly strangled in a car, then her body was burnt and dumped at a forest in Raigad, about 84 km from Mumbai.
Her purported remains were found a month later and buried by the police, which treated the body as unclaimed.
For three years, Indrani Mukerjea told her family and friends that Sheena had shifted to the US.
Recently, a man claiming to be Sheena's biological father, Sidhharth Das, surfaced and said that he was not in touch with Indrani.
