Sheena Bora died due to asphyxia as a result of strangulation, according to a medical report by All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the Sheena Bora murder case in which her mother Indrani Mukerjea is the key accused.

The report prepared by a five-member medical board is part of the CBI chargesheet in the case.

Death in this case is due to asphyxia as a result of strangulation by the way of ligature or manual cannot be ruled out...The deceased had skeletal burns (burning of bones) which is only feasible in the case of deep burns. It is observed that there were pan-body burns over skeleton, which suggests the extent of burns were massive and intention was to destroy the whole body to conceal the prime evidence of death investigation.

The report also said the human skeleton, sent for examination and believed to be of Sheena’s, was of a female aged about 23. It put the time of death at about three years ago.

These details broadly matched with Sheena, who was aged 24 at the time of her murder in April 2012.

Indrani (43), her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her ex-driver Shyamvar Rai have been chargesheeted in the murder case.

The victim was Indrani’s daughter from an earlier marriage. Former media baron Peter Mukerjea, husband of Indrani, was arrested last week for his alleged role in the murder. He is currently in CBI custody.
