Kolkata, Aug 26: Former Star TV CEO Peter Mukherjee’s wife Indrani Mukherjee’s first husband Sanjeev Khanna was on Wednesday taken for medical checkup after he was arrested by Mumbai Police in connection with Sheena Bora murder case.
43-year-old Indrani was arrested on Tuesday from her Mumbai residence after her driver confessed that he had killed Sheena, her daughter in 2012 following his employer’s orders.
Indrani, who was charged of murdering her daughter and disposing off her body, will stay in police custody till August 31.
Indrani’s first husband Sanjeev Khanna on Wednesday was arrested by Mumbai Police in connection with Sheena Bora murder case. Khanna was arrested in Kolkata after interrogation.
While speaking to media outside Kolkata Police Station, Khanna’s friend Ajay said that he will be surprised if his friend is involved in the murder case.
“I am just here as a concerned friend as what is happening. The police have already questioned him. I will be surprised if he is involved because he is not that kind of a guy,” Ajay reportedly said.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria on Wednesday said that all three accused in the murder case are under police custody and efforts are on to bring the third accused from Kolkata to Mumbai.
“Yesterday, two accused including the woman accused was arrested in the murder case and the third accused was arrested in Kolkata today. Efforts are on to bring him back to Mumbai,” Maria told the media here.
Maria further said: “On August 2, an accused was arrested in an arms case. The accused confessed his involvement in a murder case.”
“Taking the investigation further the accused took us to the place where the dead body was disposed. Further investigation revealed that the murder was committed on 24th April 2012 and the body was found by Raigad police on 23rd May 2012,” he added.
In a major twist to the Sheena Bora murder case, it was revealed that the deceased, who was allegedly murdered by Indrani, was her daughter and not her sister.
