Who was the anonymous person who tipped off the police on the Sheena Bora murder case leading to arrest of Inx Media co-founder Indrani Mukerjea?
So far the Mumbai police have remained tightlipped on the mystery person who gave crucial information three years after the murder was committed. There are several theories doing the rounds -- none of these has been established as fact.
Khar police constable: Senior police officers are saying off the record that a constable with the Khar police station, which is investigating the case, told senior police inspector Dattatray Bargude and police inspector Dinesh Kadam about the murder.
The tip off led the police to driver Shyamavar Rai and his subsequent arrest in an Arms Act case. Rai confessed to his role in the murder during interrogation.
Driver Shyamwar Rai: The second theory is that Rai got drunk and spilled the beans and somewhere the story was picked up by either a policeman present in the bar or by some informer.
Meerut resident: According to home department officials a caller from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh called up commissioner of police Rakesh Maria and told him about the murder. It is also widely rummoured Maria's informer tipped him off about the murder which is why the police commissioner chose to question the accused at the Khar police station where his trusted officers are posted.
Peter Mukerjea: Another theory claims it was Indrani Mukerjeas husband Peter who tipped off either some senior police officer or planted the information with the police through a common source.
Siddharta Das: One explantion is that Indrani's former partner Siddhartha Das told cops when he found out Sheena was his biological daughter.
Rahul Mukerjea: Sheena's fiance tipped off the police to settle scores with Indrani, according to some.
Mikhail Bora: The last theory is that Indrani's son Mikhail Bora tipped off the police. He claims his mother tried to kill him the day after she killed his sister Sheena in April 2012, but managed to escape. When he thought Indrani will try to kill him again , he tipped off the police.
