Mekhail Bora, Sheena’s brother, has told the CBI that his mother Indrani Mukerjea tried to kill him not once but twice.
He said Indrani first called him to Mumbai in December 2011. During his visit, he claimed, Indrani spiked his drink in an attempt to kill him.
HT had earlier reported that Mekhail said Indrani had made an identical attempt on his life on April 24, 2012, the day she allegedly murdered Sheena. He said Indrani called him to Mumbai to “discuss something important”.
On arriving in Mumbai, he went to Indrani’s home in Worli, where he saw Khanna and Shyamvar Rai, Indrani’s former driver, and was given a drink laced with sedatives. He claimed Indrani forced him to drink quickly, which made him suspicious. He said he secretly disposed of the drink and left the house, and the city, after Indrani, Khanna and Rai went to Raigad in the early hours of April 25.
