Maharashtra, June 12, 2017: The Mumbai’s special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Monday adjourned the hearing in one of the most sensational Sheena Bora Murder case till June 22.

Earlier in March, the CBI court deferred the trial after the defence protested over the non-appearance of approved and first witness Shyamvar Rai, who was Indrani Mukerjea’s former driver.

In January, a Special CBI Court started the trial by framing charges against Indrani Mukerjea, and her two step-fathers – former media tycoon Peter Mukerjea and Kolkata-based businessman Sanjeev Khanna with murder and criminal conspiracy in connection with this case.

The murder, which took place on April 24, 2012, came to light in 2015 with the arrest of Rai, who later turned approver for the CBI.

Indrani, Khanna and Rai have been accused of strangling 24-year-old Sheena – Indrani’s daughter from a previous relationship on April 24, 2012. Her burnt body was dumped in a bag in the forests in Raigad district near Mumbai.

The trio was arrested in August 2015, while Peter was arrested later on November 19 that year.
