Camera crew had packed up, barricades were removed and the crowd dwindled at the Khar police station, where INX co-founder Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamwar Rai, accused of murdering Sheena Bora, were being interrogated.
The police station was bustling with activity since Indrani’s arrest on August 25. This was followed by visits by her son Mikhail Bora, husband Peter Mukerjea and his Rahul. It also became a local attraction of sorts, with several passers-by stopping to catch a glimpse of the proceedings.
Finally, when the then Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria turned up at the police station, the fervour surrounding the case peaked.
Now, with all three accused in judicial custody, but more importantly, with the abrupt promotion and transfer of Maria, life at Khar police station seems to have returned to normal.
On Wednesday and Thursday, no developments were reported in the Sheena murder probe, but the duty officer’s desk was busy attending to fresh cases and complaints.
While the scene at the Khar police station returned to normal, uncertainty looms over who would lead the probe now and where it was headed.
Currently, in a corner of the police station, a team of officials continue to sift through volumes of documents related to the Sheena Bora murder case, not knowing when they will be asked to hand over files.
