Guwahati (Assam) [India], July 28 (ANI): Hours after Indrani Mukerjea's driver Shyamvar Rai confessed that the former had told him that she would kill Sheena Bora, her step son Mikhail on Friday stated that he hopes that his sister gets justice. Speaking to ANI, Mikhail said, "Everyone knows whatever has happened. The driver has also given a statement to the police and the CBI. This is nothing new to us. I hope that my sister gets justice as soon as possible." "I had told the CBI earlier also that she (Indrani Mukerjea) had targetted me and tried to kill me," he said. Earlier in the day, Indrani's driver deposed in the court and confessed that she had told him, she would kill Sheena Bora and her step son Mikhail. "I was alone in office at that time, Indrani Madam told me on Skype I am a very trustworthy person and she wanted to tell me something which I cannot tell to anyone. She told me that she will take responsibility of my child's education and all medical expenses of my family. She assured that my job as a driver will stay forever. She said that Sheena and Mikhail are defaming her by calling their 'mother' everywhere and this has started quarrels. Peter Mukerjea's son Rahul is in love with Sheena Bora and therefore she would have to kill Sheena and Mikhail," Rai told the court. He added that Indrani told him to not worry and that a man would come from Kolkata to kill Sheena and Mikhail. Rai, a resident of Madhya Pradesh's Chhindwara, further said that he was offered a job of driver at Indrani's place with a salary of Rs. 10,000 per month. The driver also admitted that Indrani had paid him money for helping with the murder. Bora was allegedly killed in 2012, but the case came to light in 2015, after Rai's arrest. Rai is the crucial link in the case which led to the arrest of Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna for the murder of Sheena. Meanwhie, Indrani will be interrogated in connection with the murder of Manjula Shetye, a Byculla jail prisoner, said Maharashtra minister Ranjit Patil. Patil announced the development in the monsoon session of the Legislature. Action will also be taken against the doctor of the JJ Hospital's Casualty Department, who gave false reports on Shetye's death. (ANI)
