Sheena Bora murder case is one of the most high profile thunderbolts that the country has witnessed. While most are passing personal and lewd judgements about a mother who killed her own child; there’s also a side that’s trying to analyze the role of class and overriding ambition of a woman who dreamt big and got sucked into it beyond anyone’s reach.  It’s also strenuous to exactly define Mikhael’s role; here’s a guy who took money from his mother every single month and is now out to fight for his sister after she went missing for three years; it’s quite bizarre. Rahul Mukerjea has confessed that he possessed Sheena’s passport; how did Sheena shift to the States then? Apparently she had two passports. And most importantly a man who lived with his wife for fifteen years; avows that he knows nothing about her past or what she had been up to all these years. Too many questions and abundant pending answers; for now the police are trying to identify the primary motive behind this heinous crime.  Whether it was money, power or both; Indrani Mukerjea has definitely given Lady Macbeth a run for her money!
