CBI registers case against 3 prime accused

Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyam Rai booked under several sections of the IPC; lapses of Raigad police will be probed separately by CBI

Mumbai : The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), that has taken over the probe into the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, registered an FIR against the three prime accused – Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyam Rai – on Tuesday.

The trio has been booked under sections 120-B, 364, 302, 307, 328, 201, 202 and 203 of the IPC and Section 3(25) of the Arms Act pertaining to criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, murder, destruction of evidence and causing hurt by administering poison, among others.

Two CBI officers visited Khar police station around 1 pm, and by 4.30 pm a lady IPS officer too joined them. According to police, the CBI went through the case papers of the investigations in the case that have happened so far. However, a source at the police station revealed that the assessment of the probe by CBI may take some more time as the punchnamas, FIR copies, statements of the accused, and other documents related to the case will be translated to English from Marathi.

Sources also informed Free Press Journal that the lapses in the case by the Raigad police will be probed separately. “The issue related to the Raigad police will not be included in the murder case charge sheet as it will be investigated separately,” he said.

“The CBI team will now frequently visit Khar police station to go through the documents and get into the depth of the case before attending any court dates. “We have been asked to give all the details that we have pertaining to case that can help take the investigation ahead,” he said.
