Three police stations under scanner

As the probe into Sheena Bora's murder progressed at multiple locations with multiple possible angles, the role of some cops posted in three police stations — Pen in the Raigad district and Khar and Worli police stations in Mumbai — has come under scanner.

The role of the Pen police station is surprising and has shocked legal experts. On May 23, 2012, when the body of a girl was recovered, no FIR or ADR was registered by the local police, and instead just an entry was made in the Station Diary.

As a result, some policemen at the Pen police station and the then Superintendent of Police (SP), R D Shinde, who is currently posted in Mumbai as an additional commissioner of police (central region), have come under scanner.

Shinde has refused to talk to reporters. The current Raigad SP, Mohammed Suvez Haque, is probing the issue, and has submitted a factual report to the Director General of Police Sanjeev Dayal, while another report is to be submitted to Special Inspector General of Police (Konkan Range) Prashant Burude. As far as police stations are concerned, the first that has come under scanner is the Khar police station, which has reportedly not taken the complaint of Rahul Mukerjea, who had gone there to tell the police he had dropped Sheena near the Jockey showroom off the RD & SH National College and SWA Science College, in Bandra on April 24, 2012.

However, he was told he was not a resident of the Khar jurisdiction when he went to the police station after a couple of days.

Later, he went to the Worli police station, as Peter Mukerjea stayed with wife Indrani in Marlow bungalows compound on the Pochkhanawala Road. The Worli police station apparently spoke to Indrani at the Mukerjea's residence, and did not question her version that Sheena was in the United States.
