Indrani Mukerjea, wife of media baron Peter Mukerjea was arrested in August by Bandra police in connection with the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora and since then she was lodged at Khar jail women’s cell. Sheena Bora, 24 years, was killed in 2012 but her murder came into the light after almost 3 years due to a call received by the commissioner of police, Mumbai that led to investigation of this case. During the investigation, police had arrested Indrani’s driver Shyam Rai, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and the prime accused Indrani herself. After the arrest, all of them confessed the murder and modus operandi. Indrani’s husband Peter was also questioned on several occasions and he revealed many things which helped the case to reach this stage. The sources have also revealed that, few days ago Indrani’s mother Durga Bora had passed away, it is not known if Indrani was aware of this fact, but Durga was bedridden for the past two years.

The truth will come out as soon as Indrani attains the consciousness. It is not yet known as from where the drug came into the cell, that too in excess quantity? if someone tried to kill her then who was that person?  All these questions and more will expose very soon. The police investigation is on, and everybody is waiting for the Indrani to come out of comatose state and tell the truth.
