Sheena Murder Case Transferred To CBI

Mumbai, September 19: In a latest twist to the high profile Sheena Bora murder case the Maharashtra government on Friday transferred the probe to the Central Bureau Of Investigation(CBI) saying that this is not just a murder but there also seems to be a financial angle involved in the case. 

Addressing a press conference, to clarify who will head the Sheena Bora murder probe, Maharashtra Home Secretary KP Bakshi said, "CBI will probe the Sheena Bora murder case."

"Government believes there may be some financial links to Sheena murder case. Can't consider the case just as a murder case" he added.

He also informed that the present Mumbai Police Commissioner Ahmed Javed is not interested in supervising the Sheena murder probe as he knew the Mukherjea's socially so for "a fair and impartial probe" it is better to hand over the case to the CBI.
