Guwahati, Aug 26 (IANS) 9X Media founder Indrani Mukherjea’s son Mikhail said on Wednesday that his mother could have killed his sister Sheena and that Sheena was his sister, not her mother’s as she claimed to be.
Indrani Bora, who became Indrani Mukherjea after marrying media baron Peter Mukherjea, had a son and a daughter from her boyfriend while she was studying in Shillong, son Mikhail told the media.
But she left for Kolkata in the early 90s, leaving the son and daughter with her parents in Guwahati. Son Mikhail and daughter Sheena grew up with the grandparents here.
A team of Mumbai Police are likely to arrive here on Thursday to collect details about Sheena Bora.
“I have not seen our mother after I grew up. My koka (grandfather) and aaita (grandmother) were like parents for me and my elder sister Sheena,” said Mikhail.
“However, after we passed out from high school, there were some financial hardship and we had to go searching for our mother in Mumbai and met her.
“She was not willing to introduce us to anyone as her son and daughter. After spending some time in Mumbai, I came back to stay with my grandparents in Guwahati while Sheena stayed back there.
“I have been in touch with Sheena till 2012. After 2012 I lost all contact with my elder sister.
“When I contacted my mother over phone to know the whereabouts of Sheena, she replied that Sheena had gone to the US and was working for a big company,” Mikhail said.
“When I insisted on getting Sheena’s contact details, she refused to give them and kept saying that I should not interfere in Sheena’s personal matters.
“Last year, when my mother came to Guwahati and I sought details about Sheena, she not only became angry but even threatened to stop sending whatever pocket money she sent every month,” Mikhail said.
“It is a shock to learn that Sheena was murdered by our mother. But she can do it,” Mikhail said.
He added that if his mother does not tell the truth to police by August 31, he would divulge whatever he knows about her personal life.
