Mumbai. On a plea by Indrani Mukerjea, accused in the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora, a special court on Thursday directed the Guwahati airport in Assam to preserve and deposit the CCTV footage of January 5. Indrani had claimed that two lawyers had seen a woman who looked like Sheena Bora boarding the plane.
Indrani Mukerjea had earlier claimed in a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court that two lawyers had seen a woman like Bora at the Guwahati airport this week. Along with this, Mukherjee also requested the court to be directed to obtain CCTV footage of the airport to ascertain the identity of the woman.
Special CBI Judge S.P. Naik-Nimbalkar issued a notice to the director of the Guwahati airport to examine the CCTV footage of January 5 and to ascertain the identity of the woman seen in the video and photograph. The court said that the airport authorities should comply with the order till the next hearing of the matter.
According to the CBI, Bora (24) was allegedly strangulated to death in April 2012 by Mukherjee, her then driver Shyamvar Rai and ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna. His body was allegedly burnt in a forest in neighboring Raigad district. The alleged murder came to light in 2015 after Rai was arrested in another case.
