RAIGAD: Vaishali Patil, a social-worker working for the tribals in Gagode village from 25 years, on Friday called the forest, where Sheena Bora was buried a ‘killer favourite,’ adding that actor Ranjit’s farm was located next door that had also seen six murders. 

“It has been going on from 1986. This forest has become a place where murderers think they can hide their crime. In the farm nearby, which belonged to actor Ranjit, six murders happened," Patil to ANI.

"The whole village knows about this. We filed a complaint with the police then. But the offence wasn’t registered. Five of the six bodies were declared unidentified and cremated,” she added.

“We feel very insecure because of so many murder cases happening around here. Because you can never tell if your complaint will be registered or if legal action would be taken,” Patil continued.

In the Sheena Bora murder case, the body of the victim was found in the same Raigad forest by the Raigad Police.
