KOLKATA: Sanjeev Khanna, former husband of Indrani Mukherjea who was detained on charges of killing Sheena Bora, was arrested by police from Mumbai here on Wednesday, an officer said.

Khanna was arrested from Alipore area after being grilled for a few hours by Mumbai police personnel.

"Mumbai police sought our help in tracing Sanjiv Khanna. He was arrested from the house of a friend in the city," said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Pallab Kanti Ghosh.

Khanna was brought to the Alipore police station. He will be presented before a city court on Thursday where Mumbai police will seek his transit remand.
