A Mumbai Police official talks to Indrani Mukherjea’s son Mikhail Bora (centre) at Sundarpur in Guwahati on Thursday.

Mikhail Bora, Guwahati-based son of Indrani Mukherjea who was arrested for killing her daughter Sheena Bora, on Friday has been summoned by Mumbai police for further interrogation in the case. Accompanied by the two officials of Mumbai Police, Mikhail Bora arrived at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport near Guwahati on Friday morning to board a flight to Mumbai. Meanwhile, Indrani's former husband Sanjeev Khanna was produced in court today.

Mumbai Police have already quizzed Mikhail twice - first at his grandparent’s house, where Sheena Bora and Mikhail Bora were raised, and then at the Dispur police station on Thursday evening.

Local police sources said that during the interrogation, Mikhail submitted some vital documents including certificates to prove that he and Sheena were the biological children of Indrani Mukherjea, the wife of Peter Mukherjea. He also submitted records of some email communication between Indrani and Sheena Bora, and some photographs of Sheena, Indrani and Peter Mukherjea.

Police said that the certificates submitted by Mikhail assumes significance as Indrani had in 2002 forged Sheena’s birth certificate to show her grandparents as her parents.

Lawyer can meet Indrani, says court

The Mumbai court has also ordered police to allow Indrani’s lawyer to meet her for legal counsel. Indrani's former husband Sanjeev Khanna will be produced for remand in Mumbai court. Indrani’s lawyer had moved the court on Thursday saying that police were not allowing her lawyers to meet her. The Bandra court, while allowing the application, directed the police to follow the guidelines framed by the apex court on the rights of the accused.
