As the days are passing by, more gory details are coming from the sensational Sheena Bora murder case investigation.
According to recent reports in media, Sheena had been blackmailing her mother Indrani Mukerjea demanding a three BHK flat in Bandra.
Sheena was allegedly strangulated by Indrani, driver Shyamvar Rai and her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna in a car and the body was disposed in Raigad district the next day.
A report in The Times of India said, “Rai, in his statement to the police, said Indrani was exceptionally violent while strangulating Sheena in the car. She kept saying, “Now take your three-BHK flat in Bandra” several times in a fit of rage, he reportedly told the Khar police.”
The information was given to police by Rai before he was sent to judicial custody in the hope of becoming an approver and getting lesser punishment.
Some reasons being floated around as motives behind Sheena’s murder:
- It could be that Indrani was jealous and insecure that she could lose control over Peter’s assets if Sheena got married to Rahul, who was Peter Mukerjea’s younger son.
- Mikhail and Sheena often blackmailed Indrani by threatening to expose her as their mother and not sibling, especially to Peter Mukerjea.
- Sheena demanded a three BHK flat in Bandra and wanted to move in with Rahul or after their marriage if required. Apparently, she had been blackmailing her mother for it in return to keep silent.
However, now that Peter Mukerjea told the media that Sheena had told him in 2011 about the relationship with Indrani as mother and not as sister, is there a strong motive in Indrani’s bid to keep her silent that too in 2012 April? Since the case is being probed, the charge sheet may reveal the exact link that the police believe is behind Indrani’s motive to kill Sheena.
