NEW DELHI: CBI today took over the probe in the high-profile murder case of Sheena Bora and registered a case here against her mother Indrani Mukerjea and two others for allegedly hatching a criminal conspiracy to kill her.      

After Maharashtra Government announced handing over the probe to the agency 10 days back, CBI's's Special Crime Branch lodged a case in the designated court here against Indrani, her former husband and Sanjay Khanna and former driver Shyamvar Pinturam Rai.      

The CBI filed the case under various sections of Indian Penal Code including criminal conspiracy, murder, abduction, destruction of evidence, causing hurt by giving poison and Arms Act.         

CBI took over the investigation of the case which was earlier registered by Mumbai Police on the allegations that the accused persons hatched a criminal conspiracy to murder Sheena.            

In pursuance of this conspiracy, the accused allegedly abducted Sheena, murdered her and disposed off her body, agency spokesperson said in a statement.        

The decision to handover the probe to CBI came after days of uncertainty on the supervisory role of former Mumbai police chief Rakesh Maria who was shunted out in the midst of the inquiry that he had helmed proactively.            

The decision was taken by the state government after Maharashtra Director General of Police Sanjeev Dayal submitted a status report on the case which had concluded that the case is not limited to murder alone, but there are many questions on financial dealings that remain unanswered.     

25-year-old Sheena was murdered on 24 April, 2012, and her body was burnt and disposed off in a forest in Raigad district the next day.
