In another twist to the Sheena Bora murder case, accused Indrani Mukerjea has written a letter to CBI Director Subodh Jaiswal claiming that her daughter Sheen Bora is alive and is in Jammu & Kashmir now.

A media report quoted sources as saying that former INX media executive Indrani Mukerjea in the letter claimed she came across a woman in the jail who told her that she met Sheena Bora in Kashmir.

Mukerjea has requested CBI to hunt for Sheena Bora in Jammu & Kashmir.

Mukerjea said she will file an application in the Bombay High Court along with the letter on December 28.

The Bombay High Court in November refused to grant Mukerjea bail in the Sheena Bora murder case.

Mukerjea argued that the case was based on the statement of her driver Shyamvar Rai after he turned approver in the case.

Mukerjea, who was born in Guwahati, sought bail citing health issues as her health deteriorated due to long incarceration.

The Bombay High Court rejected her bail on several occasions.

Mukerjea was also arrested in connection to the INX media scam for which she turned approver.

In 2020, Indrani Mukerjea’s former husband and co-accused Peter Mukerjea was released on bail in the Sheena Bora murder case after 4 years of incarceration.

While Mukerjea was arrested for allegedly being part of the murder conspiracy of his step-daughter Sheena Bora,

The Bombay High Court ruled that there was no evidence to show Peter Mukerjea’s prima facie involvement in the killing.

Indrani Mukerjea has been in the Byculla jail since her arrest in 2015 for the alleged murder of her daughter, Sheena Bora.
