Indrani did it because she was enraged with Sheena over her relationship with Rahul Mukerjea - Peter Mukerjea's son from an earlier marriage - according to investigators.

The CBI also said Sheena Bora had threatened to expose her mother after a financial dispute between them. After the murder, Indrani told friends that Sheena - she had claimed to the world that she was her sister - had moved to the US.

The murder surfaced when Indrani Mukherjee's driver was arrested in a separate case. Based on the driver's statement, Sheena's half-burnt body was dug up from a forest near Mumbai.

Some 60 witnesses have recorded their statements in the trial, which started in 2017.

Peter Mukerjea was released on bail last year.
