Kolkata: The Mumbai Police reached Kolkata on Tuesday to question Siddharth Das who has claimed to be the biological father of Sheena Bora.
Media reports said that the police will record Das' statement regarding the sensational Sheena Bora murder case.
Siddharth Das today came out in the open and said Indrani Mukerjea should be given stringent punishment if she is quilty.
"I don't know whether she has committed the crime but if she (Indrani) has done it, I pray to God that she should be given the most stringent punishment," Das, who claimed to have lived here since 1998, told PTI.
Das earlier told a TV channel that he had never officially married Indrani and if she "had murdered (Sheena), she must be hanged".
He also claimed that Mumbai police did not contact him and he came to know about the case from media.
"I am ready to cooperate with them anytime they call me," he said.
Asked why he had been silent since Indrani's arrest on August 25 for allegedly murdering Sheena, he said, "I have a family and I do a small job. I feared that it may get disturbed."
Das claimed that he and Indrani used to live together at her place and Sheena was born in February, 1987 while Mikhail was born in September the next year.
He claimed that Indrani left him in 1989 but "no reason was given by her. May be she was not satisfied with the status I was having".
On why he did not take the responsibility of raising Sheena and Mikhail, Das said, "They were at in my in-laws' place. They wanted to keep them. I wanted to take care of them but I was not given a chance".
Das said that he had spoken to Sheena when she was in tenth standard.
