The CBI has agreed to terminate its probe into Sheena Bora's murder, wherein her mother, prominent media mogul Indrani Mukherjea, is charged.
According to insiders, the investigative agency has informed a special court in Mumbai that the 2012 murder probe is complete.
Indrani Mukherjea, her driver Shyamvar Rai, her previous spouse Sanjeev Khanna, and Peter Mukerjea were named in three chargesheets and two additional charge sheets issued by the CBI.
Indrani Mukerjea, the former co-owner of a television station with Peter Mukerjea, was imprisoned in 2015 for both the murders of Sheena Bora, her daughter from her first wedding, who was 25 years old at the time.
Peter Mukerjea was apprehended three months later on suspicion of assisting Indrani in the crime.
Indrani Mukherjee's chauffeur was arrested in a different case, which led to the discovery of the killing. Shyamvar Rai is indeed a suspect in the case who has since changed his mind and became an approving authority.
Indrani is accused of murdering Sheena Bora with the aid of her chauffeur and second husband, Sanjeev Khanna.
Indrani was reportedly enraged by Sheena's relationship with Rahul Mukerjea, Peter Mukerjea's son from a previous marriage, according to investigators. Indrani informed acquaintances after the murder that Sheena, someone she had constantly believed was her sister, must have been relocated to the United States.
Sheena's partially corpse was pulled out from a jungle near Mumbai, according to the driver's testimony.
Sheena Bora allegedly to publicly denounced her mother only after two seemed to have a monetary disagreement, according to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
Inside the hearing, which began in 2017, more than 60 individuals have given their testimony.
Indrani and Peter Mukherjea dissolved their 17-year marriage while still in prison, and had been issued a divorce in 2019. Last year, Peter Mukherjea was granted bail.
Former INX Media CEO Indrani Mukerjea, ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna, and driver Shyamwar Rai are accused of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora on April 24, 2012. They set fire to the body and dumped it in Raigad. Rai spilt the beans in August 2015, when he was detained in connection with an arms act. In August of 2015, Indrani and Khanna were apprehended. Indrani's husband, Peter Mukerjea, was subsequently arrested in the crime.
Sheena was Indrani's first marriage's daughter. Mikhail, her son, has claimed her of plotting to poison him on a trip to Mumbai. In this instance, the CBI has added an attempt at murder allegation against her.
Indrani, the daughter of a well-known businessman in Guwahati, had already married twice prior to marrying Peter in 2002. Khanna and Siddharth Das, both from Tripura, were her previous spouses. Sheena's real father is reported to be Das.
Besides the murder, Indrani, Peter, and Sanjeev Khanna were accused in January 2017 by a special CBI court with plotting, abduction, destroying evidence, and supplying misinformation. Indrani, 45, was also charged with forging documents, but the accusations of cheating, forgery for cheating, and inflicting harm with poison were dismissed against her.
In January 2017, Indrani filed a petition with a special CBI court, requesting permission from the investigative agency to divorce Peter. Indrani, who married Peter in 2002, stated that she intended to amend her will to donate the money to charity. Indrani – who had the Bora surname at the time – had met Peter at the Hotel Taj President's former Library Bar in 2002. They later married in a small ceremony with only a few close friends and Peter's family present.
