Mystery Escalates, Sheena's Brother Mikhail Reaches Mumbai to Cooperate
MUMBAI: Sheena Bora's brother Mikhail, who arrived in Mumbai from Guwahati, today said he will cooperate with police in the probe of his sister's murder as more details of the murky case and cover-up bid are expected to emerge later in the day.
Indrani's previous husband Sanjeev Khanna, arrested in Kolkota in connection with the case, is also expected to be produced in a court here later in the day.
"I will extend full cooperation to Mumbai Police. I will get justice for her," Mikhail, who arrived here this afternoon, told a TV channel on board the flight.
He said the Sheena murder case was not the only reason he was going to Mumbai.
"I have some other personal work in Mumbai as well," said Mikhail who is likely to be quizzed by police in connection with the murder case.
Mikhail had earlier told the media that he has evidence on the murder of Sheena. He also told reporters outside the house, where he lives with his maternal grandparents in Guwahati, that he feared he would be the next target.
A Mumbai Police team had earlier visited the maternal home of Indrani in Guwahati and talked to Mikhail.
Meanwhile, Sanjeev Khanna, the former husband of accused and Sheena's mother Indrani Mukherjea, who is the wife of former STAR CEO Peter Mukherjea, is also likely to be produced before a Mumbai court today, police said.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria, after hours of grilling of Indrani, her driver Shyam Rai and step son Rahul Mukherjea at suburban Khar police station, said late last night that police have a 'fair idea' about the motive of the murder, but declined to elaborate saying the "third accused" (Sanjeev Khanna) was yet to be interrogated.
"We have a fair idea of the motive of the murder. However, the third accused (Khanna) is yet to reach Mumbai and to be interrogated. Only then, we will be able to tell you about the motive," Maria said.
The Mumbai Police questioning Khanna told a Kolkata court that he was allegedly involved not only in the murder of Sheena Bora on April 24, 2012, but also with its planning.
The submission made by Mumbai Police at the Alipore court claimed Indrani had told them how she had a recceed Raigad's Pen area with her driver Shyam Rai on April 23 to "identify the exact spot where to dispose of the body."
Khanna has claimed that he had climbed into the SUV driven by Shyam along with Indrani, but had dozed off a few minutes later. He claimed that when he woke up he found Sheena dead near him.
Alipore city court yesterday granted Mumbai Police Khanna's five-day remand after rejecting his bail plea.
