Sanjeev Khanna, former husband of Indrani Mukerjea, was today arrested by Mumbai and Kolkata police for his alleged involvement in the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora in 2012.

Khanna, a resident of Hastings Road area in the southern part of the city, was arrested from his friend's flat in Alipore this afternoon for his alleged involvement in the murder of Bora in 2012, Kolkata Police Joint CP (Crime) Pallab Kanti Ghosh said here.

"Mumbai Police approached us for help in arresting Khanna who was initially untraceable. Then he was found from his friend's flat on Pen Road in Alipore area and arrested," Ghosh said.

According to Kolkata Police officials, Khanna was grilled by a Mumbai police team for around two hours and on finding discrepancies in his replies, arrested him.

Khanna would be produced at Alipore court tomorrow for transit remand, Ghosh said.

"Mumbai Police were willing to take him away to Mumbai today but we insisted that they produce Khanna in a local court and seek his transit remand," Ghosh said.

Mumbai Police had yesterday arrested Indrani Mukerjea, wife of former honcho of Star India TV channel Peter Mukherjea, and her driver on charges of murdering Sheena.
