Accused of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora, former media executive Indrani Mukherjee has claimed two lawyers saw someone resembling the deceased boarding a flight from Guwahati airport on January 5. A special court on Thursday directed the Guwahati airport in Assam to secure and submit CCTV footage of from the day in view of the claim by Mukherjea.

Indrani Mukerjea had earlier moved the special Central Bureau of Investigation court with this information in an application, seeking a direction to procure the CCTV footage of the airport in the state of Assam to establish the identity of the spotted woman.

Special CBI Judge S P Naik-Nimbalkar issued a notice to the director of Guwahati Airport to check the CCTV footage of January 5 of the facility and ascertain the identity of the person in the video and photograph.

It said the airport authorities should comply with the order by the next hearing of the case. Bora (24) was allegedly strangled to death in a car by Indrani Mukerjea, her then-driver Shyamvar Rai and former husband Sanjeev Khanna in April 2012. The body was allegedly burnt in a forest in the neighboring Raigad district.

The murder of Bora, who was Indrani Mukerjea's daughter from a previous relationship, came to light in 2015 after Rai spoke about it following his arrest in another case. Mukherjea was granted bail in May 2022 last year on grounds of her six-and-a-half years-long incarceration since her arrest as the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.
