Three weeks after Indrani Mukerjea’s arrest, for allegedly murdering her daughter Sheena, police seem to have found the motive behind the crime.
According to a report published on The Quint website, investigators have found photographs that suggest Sheena’s intimacy with someone, who was also close to Indrani, could be the reason behind her death.
The report says:
Sources close to Maria, who was removed last week as commissioner for his unusual interest in the case and directed to take over as Director-General (Home Guards), disclosed to The Quint that investigators have stumbled across some photographs which show Sheena and the person close to Indrani in intimate circumstances.
One photo, taken in an Indian beach resort, is explicit. Sheena, the sources said, sent over Whatsapp “suggestive” pictures of herself to this person with whom she met up in a Thailand resort town too. The two would interact on internet-based chat applications as well as Whatsapp. The police also have in their possession a few photographs that Indrani’s son Mikhail Bora shared with them. These photos feature Sheena and the man who cannot be identified for legal reasons.
Recall that a day after Indrani’s arrest on August 25, Mikhail had claimed on-camera that Sheena’s murder had little to do with financial matters and had said that he had “photographic evidence” to buttress his claim. When The Quint spoke over telephone with Mikhail on September 11, after his return from Mumbai, he refused to get into the details of the photos he had shared with the police or how he was able to lay hands on them.
