The mortal remains found from the jungle of Raigad has been confirmed that of Sheena Bora by the forensic team of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Thursday. Sheena Bora's mortal remains was recovered from the jungle of Raigad, near Mumbai after her mother Indrani Mukherjea admitted of dumping her body there.
The DNA samples collected from the mortal remains confirmed that the 24-year-old Sheena was strangled to death. Also the blood samples of the mortal remains matched with Indrani Mukherjea who was mother of the victim. Indrani, a high-profile Mumbaikar was arrested along with her husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyam Rai in August days after the mortal remains of Sheena were found in the raigad forest.
The trio were arrested with a common intention of murder and disposing the body of the victim at Raigad forest in April 2012.
Since then Indrani has been kept at the Byculla jail in Mumbai. In September Mumbai police officials had confirmed of the mortal remains belonged to Sheena. However in an unprecedented move the case was transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation which asked to re-examine the forensic tests by AIIMS.
A skull piece and a piece of bone was found at the Raigad forest through which three tests were done. In a DNA test, Indrani Mukerjea`s blood sample matched with protein extract from Bora's bone. 3D imaging provided conclusive proof.
Another test proved that Sheena Bora was around five feet three inches tall, and the “possible or probable cause of death" is strangling, sources said. Sheena Bora was last seen alive in April 2012.
