Sheena Bora murder case: Indrani Mukerjea was slapped in custody, claim lawyers

Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea's laywers claimed on Monday that she was roughed up and slapped while in police custody.

A news channel reported that Indrani's lawyers had complained to the Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria that the police were trying to take her confessional statement.

They also said that the police were pressurising her

Meanwhile, Indrani and Sanjeev Khanna's daughter Vidhie today appeared in the Mumbai court.

Indrani has been arrested, along with her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyam Rai in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case.

On the other hand, Guwahati-based Mikhail and Indrani's son had earlier told police that Indrani tried to kill him thrice.

Mikhail had also said that just hours before Indrani and Sanjeev met Sheena on April 24, 2012 and took her for what would be the last drive of her life, Indrani allegedly drugged him but he managed to escape from the spot and averted becoming the second murder victim, as per PTI.

The murder case took another turn yesterday when police seized a suitcase from the residential premises of Indrani and Peter Mukerjea in Mumbai's Worli area, apparently lending credence to Mikhail's claim about his mother's plan to kill him.

Police yesterday took Sanjeev and Indrani's driver Shyam Rai to the forest in Raigad district where Sheena's body was allegedly dumped, to 'recreate' the crime scene.

During sustained interrogation here on Saturday, Indrani and Sanjeev had blamed each other for the crime.

Indrani accused Khanna of committing the murder and dragging her into the crime. However, he said he only assisted Indrani as she had promised to help him financially.
