Sheena Bora murder: Cops recreate crime scene, seize suitcase
Indrani Mukherjea, the accused in Sheena murder case, at Khar police station in Mumbai Saturday midnight. (Photo: PTI) The sensational Sheena Bora murder case took another turn on Sunday when the Mumbia police seized a suitcase that was purportedly meant for packing the body of Ms Boras brother, whom Indrani Mukherjea had allegedly planned to kill the same day, even as key accused Sanjeev Khanna and the driver were taken to spot to re-create the crime scene. Officials, however, remained tightlipped about the progress in the probe amidst reports that Indrani and Mr Khanna had been making contradictory claims about who killed her daughter Sheena three years ago. The new twist in the probe came when Sheenas brother Mikhail claimed that their mother Indrani had planned to kill him also on April 23, 2012, when she had gave him a spiked drink and ran away fearing death. The same day Sheena was allegedly killed by Indrani and Mr Khanna in a car with the help of the driver Shyam Rai. The three had, reportedly, disposed the body in Pen tehsil in Raigad district the next day. The seizure of the suitcase from residential premises of Indrani and Peter Mukerjea in Mumbais Worli area apparently lends credence to Mikhails claim about his mothers plan to kill him as well and pack his body parts but there was no police confirmation of this theory. The police on Sunday brought Mr Khanna to Khar police station and later took him to the forest in Pen tehsil, along with Mr Rai. Indrani, Mr Khanna and Mr Rai will be produced before a local court on Monday where the police are likely to seek extension of their police custody. During sustained interrogation here on Saturday, Indrani and Mr Khanna had blamed each other for the crime. Indrani accused Mr Khanna of committing the murder and dragging her into the crime. However, he said he only assisted Indrani as she had promised to help him financially. Mikhail was also questioned at a hotel in Bandra on Saturday. Mikhail had said that just hours before Indrani and Sanjeev met Sheena on April 24, 2012 and took her for what would be the last drive of her life, Indrani allegedly drugged him but he managed to escape from the spot and averted becoming the second victim. There were also reports that Indrani had sought help of a psychiatrist to get Mikhail labelled as a mental patient, but there was no independent confirmation from police so far. Meanwhile, a village official in Raigad district, who helped the team of Mumbai police locate the spot where Sheena Bora was allegedly buried, today said when he first spotted the body in 2012 it was just a skeleton with no flesh. It was all skeleton. There was no flesh. The local government doctor took it for postmortem, after which it was buried, the police patil Ganesh Dhene of Hetevne village said. Asked how he came across the skeletal remains, Dhene said, I had gone to collect mangoes. The body was not in a suitcase. The surrounding area was burnt. Indrani, her driver Shyam Rai and Sanjeev Khanna were interrogated at Khar police station yesterday. During the course of the grilling, they blamed each other for the crime, a police official said. The blood and hair samples of Indrani and Mikhail Bora have also been collected and sent to the Kalina-based Forensic Science Laboratory. The report is expected in the next couple of days.

As Hardik began his address to the gathering, a Gujjar leader, Rajendra Mawi, who claimed to be president of Akhil Bhartiya Gujjar Mahasangh, interrupted by accusing him of extending support to the demand for Jat reservation. Mawi, who was pushed out of the venue after a brief scuffle, later said, "We are opposed to him (Hardik)... How can we support him when he is also supporting the demand by Jats for reservation." He said that Hardik was supporting the Jat cause even after their demand had been struck down by courts on the basis of petitions filed by different OBC communities, including Gujjars. Mawi further said that, given the political dominance of the Patels, they should talk to the Gujarat government and Narendra Modi dispensation at the Centre regarding their demands. Mawi claimed there was some 'power behind Hardik' and that he had approached Gujjars knowing that they were a 'martial' community and their support will help him put pressure on the government on the Patel reservation issue. Meanwhile, Gujjar leader Omvir Singh Mandara, president of OBC Arakashan Raksha Samiti, said that Hardik is being opposed by Gujjars because if reservation is given to Patels, then it will be accommodated in the 27 percent quota for OBCs.

However, there has been no hike in data charges by Vodafone in the post-paid category in Delhi or any other circles. According to the information available on companies' website, Airtel has raised data tariffs in Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, UP East and UP West circles; while Idea Cellular has hiked charges in Delhi, Punjab and UP West. Post-paid customers of the two operators in the above-mentioned circles will now have to pay Rs 300 for 1GB 3G data, against Rs 250 earlier for the same amount of data usage.

PMs land bill decision at Niti Aayogs behest: Devendra Fadnavis
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the government will not re-promulgate the controversial Land Acquisition ordinance which expires on Monday, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said here on Sunday that the decision was taken at the NITI Ayogs request. At a recent NITI Aayog meeting, most chief ministers had demanded that due to the stalemate in Parliament over the Land Bill, critical infrastructure projects of states are getting delayed and so the Centre should empower states to enact their own land acquisition models, Mr Fadnavis said. We are happy that Modi has accepted our request and decided that instead of re-promulgating the ordinance, states will be empowered to frame their own models, he said. Mr Fadnavis said that the Maharashtra government has already decided to give highest compensation to farmers as compared to other states. This decision will expedite rural and urban infrastructure projects, he said. In May, the Maharashtra government had decided to give four times more compensation than the cost of land as per the ready reckoner (RR) rate for acquiring land in urban areas, while landowners in rural areas would get five times more compensation than the ready reckoner rate. Hitting out at critics, Mr Fadnavis said, Those who say that the government has taken a U-turn fail to understand that it is a decision taken for the benefit of farmers and people at large.
