Special public prosecutor Bharat Badami on Tuesday informed special CBI Judge Jayendra Chandrasen Jagdale about the same.
Mumbai: Siddharth Das, the biological father of the deceased Sheena Bora, is facing financial difficulties and has no money to travel to and stay in Mumbai so that his statement as a witness in his daughter’s murder case can be recorded.
Special public prosecutor Bharat Badami on Tuesday informed special CBI Judge Jayendra Chandrasen Jagdale about the same. “Today, Mr Das was supposed to appear as a witness and he stays in Kolkata but he doesn’t have the money to travel to Mumbai and stay here so the government will be taking care of his travel tickets and stay in Mumbai,” said advocate Badami.
Sheena Bora was born out of the biological relationship between Mr Das and Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the murder case.
In the meantime, the prosecution examined another witness in the case. The witness, Kedar, works with the company that originally purchased the car that was allegedly used in Bora’s murder. According to the witness, his company was into the business of buying and selling cars and his company had sold the car to A.M. Motors, which rented the car to Ms Mukerjea.
During cross-examination by Ms Mukerjea’s lawyer Gunjan Mangala, the witness said that on an average, his company dealt with 30 cars every year and that there were other persons who physically checked these cars and his job was to verify the vehicles’ documents.
After recording of evidence, Peter Mukerjea, the other prime accused in the case, requested the Judge to allow his application for renewal of passport.
