Mumbai: Key accused Indrani Mukerjea’s former driver Shyamvar Rai, who has turned approver in the Sheena Bora murder case in his statement recorded under Section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code which is admissible unlike a statement to police, said that “after Indrani picked up Sheena in her car he gagged her while Indrani’s former husband Sanjeev Khanna held her hands and she strangled her”.

According to the prosecution, 24-year-old Sheena was murdered on April 24, 2012. Indrani, Khanna and Rai had allegedly strangled Sheena, Indrani’s daughter from an earlier relationship inside a car.

“Madam asked me to drive towards Taj Lands End. She sat on the dead body’s [Sheena’s] face and said that she had got her 3BHK flat.”

Sheena’s body was found in a forest in Raigad. The crime, which came to light last year, is allegedly linked to certain financial dealings.

The trio were arrested in August last year, while Peter Mukerjea was arrested in November. According to CBI, Peter was part of the murder conspiracy.

While Peter and Khanna are lodged in the Central prison at Arthur Road, Indrani is in Byculla women’s jail in the city.

In his confession recorded last year by a magistrate, Shyamvar had alleged that Indrani gave him a parcel and three months’ salary and asked him to leave soon after Sheena’s murder in 2012.

“However, when I opened the parcel it contained a crude weapon (gun),” Shyamvar had said, according to PTI.
