Mumbai, Sept 2: After several twists and turns in the high profile Sheena Bora murder case, Mumbai Police is now headed toward a different challenge- to trace the caller who had tipped off Mumbai police about the incident. He/She could hold the key to a number of puzzles, believes police.
The police is said to have traced the call made to Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria to western Uttar Pradesh, but are yet to nab the person who made the call. A crucial piece of evidence, the caller is also considered to be an eyewitness.
Media tycoon Peter Mukerjea's wife Indrani Mukerjea allegedly killed her own daughter and is said to have burnt and dumped the body in a secluded forest area in Raigad. An inside source said," The police are trying to trace the caller. They believe he or she can share vital information and throw some light on the case. They also want to establish if it was animosity, a property dispute or something else that prompted the caller to lift the lid off the case. The caller may also prove to be an important witness."
While the home department is apprised of the situation, it is also looking into the Raigad police suspension case. The Police in Raigad has been accused of negligence after it discovered skeletal remains from a forested area in Pen tehsil, just days after Sheena was murdered.
An officer from the home department said,"Director general of police Sanjeev Dayal has been asked to complete the probe in a specific amount of time. The investigating officers have been asked to check whether the local police intentionally hushed up the matter or whether it was a case of dereliction of duty. It will be also investigated if there was any political pressure involved in keeping the matter under wraps. If found guilty, the policemen responsible will face stern action."
