Sheena murder case: Indrani Mukerjea taken to her Worli residence, police recreate crime scene

Mumbai: In a bid to reconstruct the crime scene and recover some evidence, Mumbai Police on Sunday took Indrani Mukerjea, prime accused in Sheena Bora murder case, to her Worli residence here for the first time since her arrest.

The development comes a day before police custody of all three accused – Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shayamvar Rai - ends in the said case.

Investigators are also looking at all possible angles to unravel the "filmi" plot and said they wanted to determine why the alleged conspirators had chosen the particular spot in Raigad district to dump the body.

Cops had earlier recovered a suitcase from the Worli resident of Indrani, wife of media baron Peter Mukerjea, which was allegedly kept to dispose her son Mikhail's body, who was the next target after Sheena.

Meanwhile as per media reports, police will also probe Indrani's email account and credit cards details.

Earlier in the day, the second accused in the high profile murder case, Sanjeev Khanna was brought to Khar Police Station for further interrogation. 

Leaving no stone unturned to solve the mystery, Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria has reportedly said that he will not let Sheena Bora murder case turn into Delhi's Aarushi Talwar case.

A local court had yesterday extended till September 7 the police custody of former television executive Indrani Mukerjea and two other accused - Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shayamvar Rai.

Indrani, Khanna and Rai have been arrested in the case pertaining to the murder of her daughter Sheena and the disposal of the body in a Raigad forest in April 2012.

Requesting the court to grant extension of the custody of the accused, Special Public Prosecutor Vaibhav Bagade had yesterday said, "It may appear 'filmi' but we need to find out why this particular place was chosen to dump the body."

Indrani was not cooperating with the investigators and was a "hard nut to crack", police had told the court even as forensic results of the samples of skeletal remains found in Raigad forest are awaited.

Police had claimed on Thursday that Indrani had confessed to murdering Sheena.

Investigators are also probing if someone else too was involved in the alleged murder conspiracy.

Indrani, who was produced in the court yesterday, remained calm and composed through the hearing. Policemen formed barricades inside the court room to keep the crowd in check.
