Mumbai: In an interesting masterplan adopted by the Mumbai police, cops on Tuesday conspired to extract more details about the murder of Sheena Bora.

The cops, in their absence, put all three accused in a room and without their knowledge monitored the proceedings, according to a media report.


The plan was hatched by Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria and Joint CP (law and order) Deven Bharti as Indrani refused to speak about the case.

After an initial pin drop silence, Indrani looking towards Khanna and asked him why he did that to her.

“Why did you do this to me? It's because of you that I am here. You dragged me into this. And I trusted you,” Indrani said.

While Khanna was quiet with his head down, Indrani is reported to have broken down.

Here’s how things unfolded in the lock-up:

Indrani: “How many more things have you been hiding from me? More than half of the things you told the police were completely shocking. And I even didn't know them. How could you hide all this from me?“

As Indrani raised her voice, Khanna extended his hand up to her and asked her to stay calm.

Khanna: “I am sorry but I could not do anything about it. Please listen to me.“

Indrani then pushed his hand away and turned to driver Rai.

Indrani: “Ye sab tumhari galati hai (this is all your fault). Who told you to open your mouth before the police? Why didn't you shut up? You wanted money? I would have given you more money. If you were in trouble, I could have given you all the legal aid.If only you kept your mouth shut this wouldn't have happened. On whose side are you? It's because of you that I have to see this day.“

Indrani: “And why didn't you tell me about this person (a fourth person who is now in the police radar) who showed you the spot.I never knew anything about him. Why did you take his help? You have got us into this problem.“

She then addresses Khanna.

Indrani: “You both are together in this. I know it very well. But I am never going to accept any of this. You both have fixed me.How could you tell the police that it was my plan? Right from calling Sheena to killing her and purchasing the suitcase and petrol and then burning her and disposing her body. How dare you put all the blame on me? You both are responsible for all this and you too shall face the consequences. I am not taking this alone."
