A witness in the Sheena Bora murder case told the trial court on Wednesday that he had seen prime accused Indrani Mukerjea and two others near the spot where Sheena’s remains were later found.

“I came to know that [Sheena’s]body was burnt at Gagode Khind (in Raigad district) through TV news (in August 2015),” said Sandeep Patil, the witness. “When TV news was displaying (pictures of) Indrani, Sanjeev Khanna and Shyam Rai, I realised I have seen these people,” said Mr. Patil, who runs a gym at Khalapur. Mr. Patil, deposing as a prosecution witness before special CBI judge J.C. Jagdale, identified Ms. Mukerjea and Mr. Khanna in court as two of the people he had seen.

CBI witness Ajit Mangilal, who owns a shop on old Mumbai-Pune road, told the court that he sold a 20-litre plastic can to a man in a silver car in April 2012. A woman was sitting in the rear seat, he said. He identified the man as Mr. Rai when police brought him to his shop. In court, he identified Ms. Mukerjea as the woman in the car.
