When the investigation on Sheena Bora case began it appeared that the driver is a prime accused in this crime but as the story started unfolding more suspects started coming into the picture and finally the needle of suspicion had pointed towards Indrani and Khanna making them the prime accused and the mastermind of this sensational murder mystery. Police immediately arrested both of them and interrogation began under the supervision of Commissioner of police Mumbai Rakesh Maria.
Now the interrogation took another interesting turn with all three accused started blaming each other for the murder of Sheena Bora. Police is suspecting that this could be the tricks played by the accused to slip out of this murder case taking the support of legal technicalities, but Mumbai police making sure that no criminal manage to escape from the trap of bylaw.
Both Indrani and Khanna have been grilled by the Mumbai police and they found out that both are giving evasive replies during their interrogation. According to the available information from Khar police station Indrani’s son Mikhail Bora was questioned by the police at a Hotel in Bandra. They are trying to probe into the claim Mikhail made saying 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 had also allegedly drugged him. By the time they came back, he had managed to flee from there.
Meanwhile police have also managed to trace the car used in the crime “We have traced the car. The car had changed many hands in three years and we are yet to recover it,” said a senior police official. But in spite of tracing the car used in the crime the lapses by Raigad police in not registering a case of murder or accidental death three years back when a partially-burnt body, believed to be hers, was found and hence the cops have decided to recreate the crime scene they will be taking the three arrested accused to Raigad district to recreate the crime scene. The police also sought call data records of the three accused. The entire investigation is based on the forensic examination of the skeletal remains which were found in Pen District of Raigad.
