Mumbai: Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria tonight said the police have a fair idea of the motive behind the murder of Sheena Bora 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, a former husband of Sheena’s mother Indrani Mukherjea) is yet to reach Mumbai and to be interrogated. Only then, we will be able to tell you about the motive,” Maria told reporters after a day-long interrogation of Indrani, her driver and Rahul Mukherjea at the suburban Khar police station.
To a question whether the police had confirmed if Sheena was Indrani’s sister (as the latter had made people believe) or her daughter, Maria said “Sheena is the daughter of the lady accused.”
The Police Commissioner also said the investigators today recorded the statement of the accused who signed as Sheena on the letters prepared by the “lady accused” informing the company in Mumbai where Sheena worked that she was resigning, and also Sheena’s landlord that she was ending her lease and license agreement.
Asked if the police will interrogate Indrani’s third husband (media baron Peter Mukherjea), Maria said “we will do a complete investigation. It is just 48 hours now….Let the third accused come, then we will be able to tell you about the motive.
