Sheena Bora Murder Trial

He says he had seen the trio outside a car early one morning

Early one morning, approximately in 2012, Sandeep Patil, a gym trainer by profession who also owns a fitness centre, said he had seen three persons outside a car in Gagode Khind area, when he was riding his bike from Khopoli to Pen.
Gagode Khind in Raigad is the location where Sheena Bora's body was disposed. He told the special CBI court hearing the Sheena Bora murder case that he had slowed down his bike when passing by a silver car outside which he saw three persons standing, that had stopped in Gagodi Khind area.  Later, in August 2015, when he saw TV news channels showing photos of some individuals connected to the Sheena Bora murder case, he realized that he had indeed seen them, he told the court. Patil had then gone to the Khar police station and informed them about the same, after which his statement was recorded. He had also been taken to Arthur Road jail where he identified Sanjeev Khanna and Shyamvar Rai in two separate identification parades as the men he had seen outside the car that day. He had then been taken to the Byculla jail where he had identified Indrani Mukerjea as the woman he had seen then. Yesterday in court too he identified Khanna and Indrani. Shyamvar Rai was not present in court as he is an accused turned approver in the case.

Another witness who appeared before court was a shopkeeper Ajit Mongal. Mongal runs a shop selling plastic items on the old Mumbai-Pune highway. According to CBI case, the plastic can in which petrol was filled to set Sheena's body on fire, was bought from his shop. Mongal said in court that in 2012 a silver car had stopped outside his shop. One man had bought a plastic can of 20-litre capacity from him. He also said he had seen a woman sitting in the backseat of the car and that when Khar police had come to his shop in connection with the Sheena Bora murder case, he had identified the woman they had brought with them in the police vehicle. He also identified Indrani Mukerjea in court as the same woman who was in the car that day.

Indrani Mukerjea, her husband Peter Mukerjea and ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna are facing trial for the murder of Indrani Mukerjea's daughter Sheena Bora. The murder which took place in 2012 only came to light in 2015 when Indrani's driver who was allegedly involved in the murder was arrested for another offence.
