Mumbai | Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to interrogate Indrani Mukherjea, a prime accused in her daughter Sheena Bora Murder case to probe into the ‘Money Laundering’ angle involving finances in INX Media, founded by Indrani and her husband Peter. Former Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria, who was supervising investigation in murder of Sheena Bora, had written a letter to ED to investigate into the finance matter involving INX media.
Mr Maria was suddenly removed from the Commissioner post and transferred to Director General of Home Guards, on promotion by the state government. It may be recalled that the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson Nawab Mallik had already demanded an ED investigation into the case.
He said a detailed investigation is done with proper monitoring; a big name will be exposed. The Mumbai police investigating the murder case had asked Enforcement Directorate (ED) to look into and probe financial transactions of the accused in this case and into the business ventures floated by Indrani and Peter.
The NCP leader alleged that Maria was shunted out as the name of an industrialist close to a top BJP leader had cropped up during the course of investigation into the case and that Maria was close to unearthing money laundering in INX Media.
Indrani, her former husband Sanjiv Khanna and driver Shyamvar Rai have been arrested on charges of murdering Sheena Bora and disposing off her body at Pen forest in Maharashtra’s Raigad district in April 2012.
