The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered an FIR in connection with the high-profile Sheena Bora murder case on Tuesday. The investigating agency, in its FIR, has named Indrani Mukerjea, the victim’s mother, Mukerjea’s ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai.
The decision to handover the probe to CBI came after days of uncertainty on the supervisory role of former Mumbai police chief Rakesh Maria who was shunted out in the midst of the inquiry that he had helmed proactively.
The decision was taken by the state government after Maharashtra Director General of Police Sanjeev Dayal submitted a status report on the case which had concluded that the case is not limited to murder alone, but there are many questions on financial dealings that remain unanswered.
